Cinematic Gods? Robert Segal on Myth's Persistence. Erfani, F. Jung Journal: Culture & Psyche, 6:72-75, 2012.
abstract   bibtex   
Robert Segal has provided a masterful introduction to myth in Myth: A Very Short Introduction. Segal's book serves, however, a greater purpose than merely surveying a history of thinking about myth. Through his analytical summary, Segal also argues that myths are here to stay and that they fill a need that science has never filled. In his view, today's cinematic stars continue to productively capture our imagination much like the Gods in antiquity.
