Metaphor and myth in science and religion. [Earl R Mac Cormac] -- Most of the effort in this work is fully devoted to establishing the thesis that science and religion use language in a similar manner; both employ metaphors to suggest new hypotheses, both seem to.

Chapter II Metaphor As Myth and As Religion The Problem Metaphor As Fact and Fact As Metaphor Metaphors of Psychological Transformation Threshold Figures The Metaphorical Journey Metaphorical Identification The Net of Gems /5(3).

But that is beside the point and likely not possible, so trying to get people to understand their current religion as metaphor is the option to refuting religion.

The problem with some commentators, and to some extent Tacey, is that they confuse atheism as being nonspiritual. Atheism is exactly what the word says, non-theistic, no belief in a by: 4. 'A mere metaphor', 'only symbolic', 'just a myth' - these tell tale phrases reveal how figurative language has been cheapened and devalued in our modern and postmodern culture.

In God and the Creative Imagination, Paul Avis argues the contrary: we see that actually, metaphor, symbol and myth, are the key to a real knowledge of God and the sacred.

Turns out Adler was upset with about one page of the that make up "The Inner Reaches of Outer Space." I don't disagree with the views Campbell expressed on that page and the rest of the book is a heady melange of psychology, mythology, religion, art, and literature/5.

Science, on the other hand, boldly gave up the connection with the other and opted instead to pursue an increase in human knowledge. If religion is Self-oriented, science is ego-oriented.

Developed from a memorable series of lectures delivered in San Francisco, which included a legendary symposium at the Palace of Fine Arts with astronaut Rusty Schweickart, Joseph Campbell s last book explores the space age. Campbell posits that the newly discovered laws of outer space are actually at work within human beings as well and that a new mythology is implicit in this realization/5(2).

-Religion as Metaphor is a sustained and provocative attack on religious literalism. Tacey spells out the consequences of reading scripture and its major themes, the figure of Christ, the virgin birth, the resurrection, the demonic and the apocalypse, through a symbolic lens/5(5).

Religion as Metaphor argues that despite what tradition tells us, if we "believe" religious language, we miss religion's spiritual meaning. Tacey argues that religious language was not designed to be historical reporting, but rather to resonate in the soul and direct us toward transcendent realities/5(5).

Written with a sense of urgency in the face of our generally literal-minded, rationalistic, linear way of thinking (in the West), Campbell focuses on the metaphoric value of myth, science, anthropology, history, and so on.5/5(5).
