In Western culture the idea of the birth of philosophical thought as a passage from the mythos to the logos is still a useful paradigm of understanding. However, as Hans-Georg Gadamer explains, this passage should be interpreted not in an evolutionary sense, but as the rise of another new way to explain the reality that progressively leaves the myth, but without initially giving up its languages and narrative forms. This is clearly visible, for example, in the analysis of Plato’s idea of “divine”, observing hermeneutically the concepts and forms of myth, religiosity and poetry.

Abstract

In Western culture the idea of the birth of philosophical thought as a passage from the mythos to the logos is still a useful paradigm of understanding. However, as Hans-Georg Gadamer explains, this passage should be interpreted not in an evolutionary sense, but as the rise of another new way to explain the reality that progressively leaves the myth, but without initially giving up its languages and narrative forms. This is clearly visible, for example, in the analysis of Plato’s idea of “divine”, observing hermeneutically the concepts and forms of myth, religiosity and poetry.
