Book Description:
Myths and Fictions the third in a series of books on comparative philosophy and religion is a collection of original essays, none previously published, on the theory and the actuality of myths and fictions in the different cultures of the world.

Taken as a whole, the book makes a serious attempt to get beyond the confines of any single culture and enter into the mythical imagination of the ancient Hindus, Chinese, Hebrews and Christians, and by this act of imagination to escape (in Italo Calvino's words) 'the limited perspective of the individual ego, not only to enter into selves like our own but to give speech to that which has no language...'
