ABSTRACT. In our age of the mind, the notion of myth has fallen into disrepute to a great extent. Myth has come to designate, in the general understanding, either a pre-Christian cosmogonic account of a people and/or a certain world order, or a fabricated, overgeneralizing statement that promotes false or fictitious information, an unfounded belief that is sometimes used to justify particular social orders, practices and institutions. pp. 187–208
