The Myth of the Eternal Return

Archétypes et répétition
date of publication:  1949
original title:  Le mythe de l’éternel retour.

The "eternal return" is an idea for interpreting religious behavior proposed by the historian Mircea Eliade; it is a belief expressed through behavior (sometimes implicitly, but often explicitly) that one is able to become contemporary with or return to the "mythical age"—the time when the events described in one's myths occurred. It should be distinguished from the philosophical concept of eternal return. Source: Wikipedia (en)
