One of the most radical discoveries of Freud and Jung is that the unconscious is “mythological”—that ancient gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines, and fabulous creatures are alive and well in the psyches of modern men and women. In THE MYTHOLOGICAL UNCONSCIOUS, Michael Vannoy Adams provides numerous persuasive examples of how myths appear in contemporary dreams and fantasies, and he does so with erudition, wit, and eloquence.
