The intent was to trace the development of myth throughout history and throughout the world. The first volume (The Way of the Animal Powers) covers the most ancient themes of the Paleolithic Great Hunt and its survival into modern (mostly native) cultures which still live by their agreement with the animals they hunt. Volume 2 (The Way of the Seeded Earth) was to deal with planting cultures and the myths of agriculture an the plant world. Of the three main centers of agricultural development (the New World, the Far East, and the Middle and Near East) , Campbell completed work only on the first and most recent. Volume 3 was to cover the myth systems based on astronomical and astrological insight. Volume 4 would have dealt with systems recognizing the microcosm of the human soul as a reflection of the macrocosm of the Universe. A summary of his thoughts on these topics can be found in his classic "Masks of God" series. EB; 8vo 8" - 9" tall. Codice libro della libreria 49847
