Ev Cochrane: The Eye of Zeus | Space News

Comparative mythologist Ev Cochrane, author of “Martian Metamorphoses”, continues his lifelong research into the themes and archetypes of world mythology with this deconstruction of Zeus.

“And he (Zeus) was reigning in Heaven, himself holding lightning and shining thunderbolt.” Ev describes how the model developed by David Talbott and himself differs from previous schools of myth. The modern science of comparative mythology has its wellsprings in the mid-18th century when William Jones demonstrated that the name of the Greek god Zeus was cognate with that of the Latin Jupiter and Vedic Dyaus. Jaan Puhvel, the author of a leading textbook on comparative mythology, called this finding “one of the greatest discoveries of modern times.”
