Summary: Zeus, Aphrodite, Apollo, Artemis, Athena -- do the gods and goddesses of Greece have anything to say to us that we haven't already heard? In this book, based on a series of his lectures, the eminent Jungian analyst and writer Edward F. Edinger revisits all the major figures, myths, oracles, and legends of the ancient Greek religion to discover what they can still reveal -- representing, as they do, one of the religious and mythic foundations of Western culture. Build
