Thanks for sharing, Don. The sample Amazon provides does a good job of encapsulating the four primary functions Joseph Campbell ascribes to myth. (Little bit of trivia – there is also a fifth function and a sixth function, mentioned in Changing Images of Man – a futurist study Campbell collaborated on with several others for SRI, the Stanford Research Institute think tank, back in the 1970s – very hard to find today, apart from libraries. These were minor functions – the “editorial” function, and the “magical” function – compared to the four primary functions Campbell identifies).
