The Lies That Reassure Us

“Myths are ideas that own and govern us by means that are not logical but psychological, and therefore are rooted in the depths of our soul. These are ideas that we have mythologized because they give no problems, they facilitate judgment; in a word, they reassure us.”


“myths prevent us from deeply understanding the world … we must therefore put our myths under critical scrutiny…”

– Umberto Galimberti, The Myths of Our Time
