Synopsis:

This book investigates the role that myth plays in constructing and legitimating forms of world order. Using a combination of political philosophy, anthropology, Jungian depth psychology, and IPE approaches, the book demonstrates why theorisation of the role of myth within the discourses of globalisation is an essential analytical tool for understanding the of power relations in the global political economy. It also demonstrates that much past philosophical and political-theoretical scholarship (especially that of Ernst Cassirer and Eric Voegelin) on the subject of the relation between mythological modes of thought and modernity has an important and very direct relevance to present-day global trends and structures.

It will be of interest to student and scholars International Relations, IPE, Sociology, Geography, Anthropology, Political Philosophy, and Cultural studies.
