Long before Joseph Campbell, and much more perceptively, the outstanding philosopher of Monism, Paul Carus (1852-1919), saw the need to reach past literal myths and religious symbols to uncover their true meaning, by assembling examples of the myths and religious imagery from all ages and cultures and deducing their common element. Carus's great work, The History of the Devil and the Idea of Evil, is here reproduced exactly as first published in 1900. New readers continue to find in Carus's extraordinary treatise an amazing wealth of provocative suggestions and remarkable insights. Book jacket.
