Name: Lifelong Learning Institute: The Truth and Life of Myth
Date: September 17, 2020
Time: 1:30 PM - 2:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Typically, we dismiss wild rumors, fake cures, and crackpot claims by labeling them “myths,” meaning that only fools and frauds insist they are true. Calling something a myth implies that it’s been discredited, and smart people probably ought to know better. Yet the notion that myths are inherently false or childish didn’t take root until the early twentieth century. Before that, “myths” simply meant tales that were so familiar and so old no one could figure out who’d first told them or how long ago. They were stories that helped explain the ethos of a particular people at a particular time, while addressing some questions and conflicts that we all struggle with here and now. Within these accounts of fallible gods, implacable fate, and imperfect heroes, we can learn more about our own human nature.
