Everyone's Shrine : Pantheon

BEFORE PHILOSOPHY BECAME A SEPARATE DISCIPLINE, THE POETIC IMAGES OF MYTHS AND GODS WERE THE CENTRAL WAY IN WHICH PEOPLE ADDRESSED THE IMMEDIATE QUESTIONS OF LIFE AND DEATH. THEY QUESTIONED AND STUDIED NATURE, THE STARS AND UNIVERSE, THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HUMAN BEINGS AND THE SUPERNATURAL, AS WELL AS THE REA- SONS FOR CERTAIN CUSTOMS OR WAYS OF BEHAVIOUR. MYTHS MADE VISIBLE TO INDIVIDUALS THEIR DEEPEST LONGINGS AND IMAGININGS AND, SO, OFFERED A WAY IN WHICH SOCIETY COULD UNDERSTAND IT’S OWN BEING.
