What is a properly functioning mythology and what are its functions? Can we use myths to help relieve our modern anxiety, or do they foster it? In Myths to Live By , Joseph Campbell explores the enduring power of the universal myths that influence our lives daily and examines the myth-making process from the primitive past to the immediate present, returning always to the source from which all mythology springs: the creative imagination.
