Question and answer
what can you tell me about contemporary myths
Contemporary mythology, also called contemporary parable, is a recently developed term to describe modern stories which resemble, either in content or in cultural significance, traditional mythology such as Greek Mythology or religious stories. [ In the same way that ancient mythology provided explanations of the world and its origins, contemporary mythology provides modern people with a metaphorical language which helps us to explore, share, and understand our perceptions of the world. It also provides common reference points to facilitate discussion of social and philosophical ideas. The
term is often applied to stories of the fantasy and science fiction genres. ]
