Overview

Mythos: A Map to Metaphors, Myths, and Dreams focuses on the important facets of what makes us human. The book highlights the ways in which we communicate, the ways in which we see the world around us. Importantly, how we conceptualize that world, and how we put it into words.

Mythos takes a deep dive into our current history's big topics. The well-researched text shows how we can better connect to one another. It shows how we can broaden our inner humanity. It positively starts the process whereby we can work together. In a contemporary time in which we seem to be coming apart as a society, Mythos gives us the glue to put the parts back together using mythical stories that teach.

Melissa Wright uses her professional experience as a linguist and her own deep studies in mythology to create a program for individual human fulfillment. The author shows us, clearly and well, how we can solve the split of “he said, she said”, the divisions that break down communication. In a style similar to Joseph Campbell, Melissa shows us the Way of Ways, the paths to peaceful unity through language and story.
