New Forum – Myths of the World

(Clique para português)

Why do myths, these simple, sometimes naive tales have survived for so long? What keeps then alive? We could suspect that their survival can be explained by a function, an important function that they performed and still perform in our days. If we do suspect that, we are right. The old myths and tales survive because they touch a cord in our unconscious, and teach us lessons for life.

Mitos do Mundo

Por que mitos, estas simples, às vezes ingênuos contos e mitos têm sobrevivido por tanto tempo? O que os mantém vivos? Podemos suspeitar que a sua sobrevivência pode ser explicado por uma função, uma função importante. Os velhos mitos e contos sobrevivem porque tocam uma corda no nosso inconsciente, e nos ensinam lições para a vida.

I was involved in the business world, as an executive of large companies and university professor since recently. I was the president CSN, the largest steel-mill of Latin America and was responsible for its turn-around. My first encounter with the teachings of the Swiss psychologist C. G. Jung, one of the greatest geniuses of the 20th Century, was during my midlife crisis. Reading "Man and his Symbols" at that time, inspired me to go into Jungian analysis and to begin devouring the writings of Jung and his disciples. Since then, I've been studying psychology, especially Jungian psychology and, after reaching my seventies, I decided to become a full time writer, specializing on books on Jungian psychology and psychological thrillers. Every masterpiece of literature can be absorbed through multiple interpretations, and yield powerful insights for our daily lives. My first Jungian book, “The Little Prince for Grown-ups“, in its fourth edition in Brazil, was based on the famous book of Saint-Exupéry. The second, - “The Jungian Bible” - interprets some stories of the Old Testament and world myths. As I get older and, with a bit of luck, wiser, I want to pass on to the younger generations the lessons life has taught me. Jesus Christ taught that it was easier to sell ideas with stories. Following the Master, I published in English "The Amazon Shaman" and "In Search of Happiness", two psychological thrillers around the theme of happiness.
