Jünger, Friedrich Georg: Griechische Mythen
6., um einen Anhang erweiterte Auflage 2015
Friedrich Georg Jünger's book was first published in 1947. This work on the religion of ancient Greece, While based on a thorough reading of the sources, this essay on the religion of ancient Greece also represents the author´s attempt to artistically elucidate personal experiences and beliefs by way of his interpretative narration of Greek myths. Yet Jünger does not simply narrate them, but lays bare representations of their essential meaning: 'being' and 'essence' are his guiding concepts. It is not the revelation of the divine in the epiphany of godheads he is predominantly interested in; rather, he is concerned with the essence of man and the determinations of his world. The book consists of three parts on Titans, Gods, and Heroes, respectively. The separation of the Titans from the gods Apollon, Pan and Dionysos and the detailed representation of Pan are Jünger´s key points. Employing his concepts of the Titanic and the Panic, he supplements and substantiates the classic panorama of the Olympians as told in their myths with archaic, elementary and chthonic forces and essential elements of man. In this way, Jünger creates a vivid as well as realistic picture of Greek mythology.
