  • Book Details

This is a survey of human life in its personal, social, and mythic dimensions, drawing on a variety of sources, most notably Freud, Weber, Husserl, and recent work in cognitive and developmental psychology.



Next he describes how people are linked together by largely unconscious identifications that supply the psychological ties holding together all social groups and social organization, which in turn assume a life of their own, evolve, and modify their original unconscious bases. Finally, McIntosh explores the realm of the sacred, which he describes as a kind of "shining through" of the unconscious into the conscious lifeworld. All societies, including our own supposedly secularized age, are pictured as having mythic foundations.
