The Masks of God (Volume 1): Primitive Mythology Campbell, J.

Joseph Campbell presents a history of mankind’s religious beliefs and how they have come to influence our modern world in the series “The Masks of God, vols: I - IV”

In “Primitive Mythology, Campbell explores the very earliest of these religious beliefs and similar beliefs that exist in our contemporary world among primitive (pre-industrial) tribal societies.

The book explores, in depth, the relationship that mankind has with what mankind considers “The Divine” (and how these beliefs both help a culture develop and how they can impede progress if a belief lasts longer than the cultural need it fulfilled).
