He demonstrates that beneath both language & myth there lies an unconscious grammar of experience, whose categories & canons arent those of logical thought. He shows that this prelogical logic is not merely an undeveloped state of rationality, but something basically different, & that this archaic mode of thought still has enormous Power over even our most rigorous thought, in language, poetry & myth.

The author analyzes such seemingly diverse (yet related) phenomena as the metaphysics of the Bhagavat Gita, the Melanesian concept of Mana, the Naturphilosophie of Schelling, modern poetry, Ancient Egyptian religion & symbolic logic. He covers a vast range of material that is all too often neglected in studies of human thought.These six essays are of great interest to the student of philosophy or the philosophy of science, the historian, or the anthropologist. They are also timely for students of literature, what with the enormous emphasis placed upon myth in modern literary speculation.

This book isnt superficial speculation by a dabbler, but a penetrating study by one of the most profound & sensitive philosophic minds of our time.
