In this rich examination of how we inherit and transform myths, Hans Blumenberg continues his study of the philosophical roots of the modern world. Work on Myth is in five parts. The latter three parts present a comprehensive account of the history of the Prometheus myth, from Hesiod and Aeschylus to Gide and Kafka.

This section includes a detailed analysis of Goethe’s lifelong confrontation with the Prometheus myth, which is a unique synthesis of “psychobiography” and history of ideas. Once again Hans Blumenberg offers us a brilliant historical study. Work On Myth extends to a new domain his critical concern with our need to find certainty and direction in a world fraught with contingency. Here, too, Blumenberg proves to be one of the great humanists of our time, discerning alternatives where before we saw necessities, showing myth to be a form of thought which is with us still.


This is a stunning philological work.

It patiently connects and disconnects logical, rhetorical, and historical links between dogma, myth, and ideology, their establishments in religion, law, and science, and the critiques that singe and sear them Wallace’s work is a model of scholarly translation, ambitious and carefully executed.

Hans Blumenberg, the creator of metaphorology, was one of the most important German philosophers of the latter 20th century.
