Myth, Interpretation and Culture [Mito, interpretación y cultura]
Mito, interpretación y cultura, as well as being required reading on the current state of the question of myth and its historical and cultural aspects, has the virtue of speaking about man and the nature of the crisis that accompanies him. Above all, however, it is a reflection on modern man's epistemological conditions and his capacity for expression through and beyond language.
Lluís Duch, an anthropologist, theologian and monk of Montserrat Monastery, is an unusually original and profound freethinker, whose work combines heterodoxy and rigour. The author of Religión y mundo moderno [Religion and the Modern World] (1995), Mito, interpretación y cultura [Myth, Interpretation and Culture] (1998) and Antropología de la vida cotidiana [Anthropology of Daily Life] (1999-2004) – among many other texts making up his singular philosophy of culture –, Duch writes for the media, including the El País and La Vanguardia newspapers, and is considered one of the most important voices in the Spanish-speaking world. In April 2011, he was awarded the Sant Jordi Cross, the highest distinction conferred by the Government of Catalonia.
