Default Re: Mircea Eliade

Archetypes are in fact cultural phenomena, not spiritual or methaphysical entities. Myths are also reflections of men`s experiences and aspirations, but there are no automatic spiritual meaning about them. The mistake of Jung and Joseph Campbell is to try to make more of them that what they represent. They turned them into a religion.
