    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This study investigates the relationship between myth and rationality in modernist philosophical and literary discourse. Analyzing how the concept of myth was used around 1900, it examines Hermann Hesse’s (“myth as psychology”) and Thomas Mann’s (“myth plus psychology”) mythical narratives with reference to selected novels and stories in order to expose how their approaches and strategies in dealing with myth differed.
