Gods, mortals, and heroes. Greek myths are the primary founding texts of Western civilisation; to comprehend them is to comprehend the philosophical, literary, artistic, scientific, legal, and other roots of these disciplines. Indeed, as Luc Ferry expertly demonstrates in this book, they continue to be a rich source of knowledge that are still very applicable to our daily lives. These timeless tales are more than just folklore or cliches ("Herculean task," "Pandora's box," "Achilles heel," etc.); they provide the first sustained attempt to address fundamental human problems like "the good life," the weight of mortality, and how to find one's place in the world.
