This panoramic 1887 study argues that a nation’s mythology evolves from more “primitive” forms—which is why certain aspects of mythology are irrational. This first volume explores definitions and systems of mythology, anthropology applied to mythology, totems, magic, metaphysics, nature myths, Indo-Aryan and Indian myths, Greek myths on the origin of the world, and “savage” myths.
