Man’s myths and identity
Mýty a identita človeka
In the article I deal with a connection between myths and our identity. There are several kinds of identities – personal, pertinence to a family, social group, nation, etc. – as well as a lot of influences that create and develop the individual identity. He main structure of searching for identity can be found in ancient mythological stories. My aim is to show that we still live in old myths that were renewed for the needs of actual conditions and state of society (humanity). The question of myths and identity themselves are very wide, so I briefly present the chosen myths that I find the most visible.
