The Importance of Myth for a New Human Science

Press release from: Author Rainer Hoeing

In this book, Rainer Höing turns the critical power of myth against conventional science and dispositive thinking, propagating a theory of liberation that has not been appropriated by dominant thinking.

At the heart of the book is the discussion of myth as a counter-concept to contemporary scientific thinking. Is it really possible to find perspectives in its field of meaning that are so incompatible with the current zeitgeist that they allow us to "step out" of it and look at it "from the outside"? This is what is urgently needed. After all, the seemingly alternative-less materialistic way of thinking has the world firmly in its grip and has so far largely appropriated any criticism without consequences. In the face of a development that is rushing towards ecological, economic and social abysses, there is a need for reflection, a radical critique that allows for liberation from the given constraints.

In this situation, ways of seeing and living that are diametrically opposed and alien to the dominant way of thinking as the absolute "outside" play a key role. The confrontation with myth thus becomes the basis for a radical critique capable of breaking through the delusion of domination that has been implanted in things and concepts. The familiarity of myth with the groundlessness of things and of being leads to a theory of liberation that, with an important modification, draws on Bataille's concept of "transgression".

The anthropological dissertation at the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Marburg/Lahn under the supervision of Prof. Dietmar Kamper was passed with distinction in 1979. The decision to publish it in 2023 is based on the fact that it continues to undoubtedly enrich the structuralist discourse. It also reflects the current threats to ecology and humanity. What it offers is nothing less than a systematic break with the prevailing way of thinking.
