Levi Strauss

As it writes down Levi Strauss, the wealth of the myth is leafy, and conserves its total present time, in spite of rationalist, because full the breach that cannot complete the reason, especially, in relation to the destiny and the death. Macquarrie indicates seven characters of the myth: 1-Use a dramatic language, that is to say, is the language of the action, is of supernatural people or beings and conceived forces of the nature of animated form as it occurs in primitive mythologies and the dreams, and unlike the abstract language, is related to concrete situations. as it is possible to be given in novels or plays, and serves to interpret fields ample of the human experience. 2-His language he is evocativo, that is to say, it tolerates an agglomerate of associations, thus for example, the sun and the water, to which we give a purely functional sense him, have a great wealth in the daily life of the towns, because the sun not only served to illuminate, to warm up, to let grow and to regulate the rate of the life. Of there its great wealth and possibility of interpretations. Immediate 3-Be, that is to say, that has still not passed through the sieve of the analytical thought, that is to say, the mythical man does not ask for its meaning. The primitive man lived still immersed in his myths, was in the middle of its dream and not yet it had awaked to reflect.

That to wake up will come with Greek and the philosophy, but Plato will know to integrate both speeches harmoniously. 4-Come soon its alogicidad, which does not mean that he is absurd this means that its logical one is different from the causal one, and it presents/displays the events in a world of wonders and miracles to us. 5-in him they appear supernatural beings and a series of realities numinosas, that is to say, that go beyond the physical and literal world.
