    A survey of the past 300 years of theorizing on myth, this book takes into account the work of such prominent thinkers as Albert Camus, Claude Levi-Strauss, Roland Barthes, C. G. Jung, and Sigmund Freud. It focuses on different approaches to myth, from all of the major disciplines - including science, religion, philosophy, literature, and psychology.

    Would you try another book from Robert A. Segal and/or Ben Esner?

    No. The book was highly derivative. It lacks originality and didn't live up to what was written about it on the Audible site.

    write something that is interesting and new


    What aspect of Ben Esner’s performance would you have changed?

    it was fine


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Myth?

    everything


    Any additional comments?

    Highly derivative, not interesting.
