Dobrosław KOT – The Decline of the Myth of Myth’s Decline

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN za szt.

Bruno Schulz was not only an outstanding prose writer, but also the author of an original conception of myth. According to Schulz, myth and mythicisation are not phenomena belonging to primeval and ancient cultures, but an indelible way of making sense. Man, regardless of historical changes, continues to reach for myth and explains reality through story-telling. Myth plays a particular role in building one’s own biography, whose roots vanish in the mythical past: it is impossible to understand oneself without constructing a private mythology. This sketch is devoted to Schulz’s philosophical views on myth and their consequences for understanding man. 


Keywords: Schulz, myth, story, history, biography, hermeneutics, symbol, metaphor, decline
