The civilization of any nation covers all of its cultural elements, and the myths constitute their early cultural motifs. According to Jung, the myths are present in the collective unconscious of any nation while Vico believes that the scholars of any age would be able to discover the history through the study of myths. Due to their meta-historical nature, the ancient myths are good examples which meta-historically demonstrate the amazement, respect, and fallibility of early mankind to contemporary mankind. Meta-historical awareness of myths provides one with the opportunity to trace the origins of civilizations and facilitate mankind's progress. This article addresses the Greek myths as the most fundamental elements of modern Western civilization from a meta- historical perspective.
