  Ernst Cassirer's theory of myth
 
 
Titel: Ernst Cassirer's theory of myth
Auteur: Savodnik, Peter
Verschenen in: Critical review
Paginering: Jaargang 15 (2003) nr. 3-4 pagina's 447-458
Jaar: 2003
Inhoud: Ernst Cassirer viewed mythical thinking as a first step in our mental representation of the real world, but only a first step. What myth leaves out are the differentiations that lead eventually to science. To the primitive, mythically inclined mind, the world is an undifferentiated whole, the elements of which—including the mind itself—are thought to be concrete and interconnected. This means that there is no distinction between observer and observed, and that the observer sees the representations with which she constructs her picture of reality as direct apprehensions of reality, untnediated by any sensory or cognitive categories. Far as that way of thinking may seem from the modern mindset, we have only to examine commonplace political ideas to find evidence of the implicit assumption of an unmediated connection between the wishes of poltical agents and the results they intend to achieve.
