See All Formats & Editions


This influential 1897 work on comparative mythology takes on a scholarly controversy that raged at the time over the origin of mythology. Is myth “a disease of language,” as Max Müller claimed, or does it, as the Lang argues here, reflect the spiritual needs of humans? Lang makes the case for an anthropological study of mythology.
