Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Reading Sapolski with delight....

Regarding structural mythologies, most antrhopologists just call them myths we live by.. but I do not like to use the word myth in non-scientific enviros given the wrong connotation it has.

A more proper name are structural narratives... I did a diary once.. oh my God I found it.. and it was more than a year ago...


there are no links in the diary.. but any symbolic anthropology textbook is full of examples.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
