Blurb/Shorttext:
Classical myths serve many purposes.First,they appear real to life. Life is both a fact and fiction. The classical myth has this manifestation in terms of primordial gods and goddess like Uranus, Gaia, Hades, Either and Oceanus besides many others who are both ideas and individuals. Secondly, the same repository of myth has served psychological metaphors until modern period. The ideas developed by Sigmund Freud regarding human psychology and behaviour based on the stories of Electra and Oedipus keep on resonating time and again to understand general human nature. Thirdly, considering the examples drawn by Albert Camus in in the book ‘The Myth of Sisyphus’and Friedrich Nietzsche in the essay ‘Apollonianism and Dionysianism,’for instance, from the classical myths to explain certain philosophical insights, it testifies the intellectual potentiality of the stories. It may be also noted that the classical civilization has remained still one of the driving forces behind many other civilizations, the western civilization in particular, primarily because of its mastery over myth creation and the potential of the myths to get circulated and regenerated over the generations.
