Theories of mythology
The euhemerism theory explains how myths are actual accounts of the cultural events that took place long time ago. The theory explains in detail how myths were narrated to take godly and heroic forms.
Myths across Cultures
While the tenets of socio-values have been held in place by mythical beliefs that take the place of theoretical profiles of disciplinary facets, myths, have lost face in today’s society. The society is completely oblivious of the value of myths and the cultural value of our society. As argued in the previous lesson, mythology is a very vital study and it has helped model a society that has values and consistent objectives in behaviour and socio-religious future. Many 20th century theories about myths have refuted the credibility of myths pitting them in the class of fables and folklores. Modern theorists of science draw myths as timid perception and outdated science of culture. With such a complicated scenario, myths have failed to impress present generations, a reason why we have very few social figures that can use myths to exemplify the social-moral success. What has happened today is that, mythology is viewed as a scientific aspect of culture.
