In this talk we will explore the relationship between mythology and health: how the visceral beliefs—the myths—of both patient and physician interact either to positively impact or impede, not only their interpersonal relationship, but more importantly, the healing process itself.
We will investigate some of the biological bases for such mythic understandings, and scrutinize the ways in which technological development, globalization, and the ubiquity of mass media are continually redefining and reshaping our understanding of what it means to be “healthy.”
Finally, we will diagnose, so to say, the well-being of the body politic by examining how our contemporary mythos—whether consciously articulated or unacknowledged—fails to inform our lives with the art of living by its insistent denial of the fact of death and the inevitability of our dying.
