The book “The Intervention of Myth in History: the 21st of December 2012” has been published

The book “The Intervention of the Myth in History: the 21st of December 2012" has been published by the Scientific Secretary of ANAS Presidium, a researcher of the Institute of Folklore, Ph.D. in Philology Safa Garayev.
The book contains the author’s articles devoted to the various topical themes of folklore.
In the article “The Intervention of Myth in History: the 21st of December 2012” as an object of study, global beliefs regarding the end of the world are considered. Here the author has investigated the folklore as a dynamic, collective and procedural natural socio-cultural phenomenon on the basis of concrete facts. As a result of the psychoanalytical studies the author concluded that the despite scientific denial, the reason for the spread of these beliefs was favorable conditions for the collective fulfillment of thanatological fears (personal fear of death) through an appropriate “history”. So it was found that the driving force in spreading beliefs in the connection with the end of the world was the fear of people before death, as well as similar traditional metaphors existing in individual cultures.
The publication also includes articles such as “Dreams as a psycho-cultural process associated with the system of individual collective symbols”, “Shah-Vezir relations in fairy tales as a manifestation of the model of twin myths”, “Girat and Durat in the context of model of twins”, “The transformation of psychological archetypes to the cultural archetypes: the mythical semantics of the Devil’s image (based on the tragedy “Iblis” H.Javid)”, “The ritual-mythological semantics of the part “Basat kills Tepegoz”, etc.
