Full description for Egypt's Legacy
In Egypt's Legacy , Michael Rice explains the majesty and enduring appeal of Egyptian Civilization. He draws on Jungian psychology to show why Egypt has been so important in the history of the West. Jung claimed that there exist certain psychological drives dormant in our shared unconscious: these are the Archetypes. Western Civilization owes to Egypt the first formulation of most of these Archetypes, from the omnipotent god to the ideas of the nation state, political organization and astronomy. People of the present day continue to wonder and marvel at the majesty of Egyptian art and architecture; in this book, Michael Rice sets out to recover the sense of wonder that the Egyptians themselves felt as they contemplated the world in which they lived, and the way they expressed that wonder in the religion, art and literature. He traces the story of Egyptian civilization from its emergence in the third millennium BC to its transformation following the Macedonian conquest in 30 BC.
