les héros d’aujourd’hui :

La notion de héros est aujourd’hui très confuse. Les nouveaux héros des jeunes aujourd’hui peuvent être fictifs ou réels, mais ne sont pas connus simplement pour le fait extraordinaire, ou même leur bonnes actions. Ils représentent un modèle, un exemple de beauté ou de talent: une actrice, un chanteur, un joueur de foot….

Mais des vrais héros existent encore aujourd’hui!

what is a myth ?

definitions for the notion of myth

A myth is a story that may or may not be true. There are often no records or proof that the myth happened. Some myths have factual origins, while others are completely fictional. However myths are more than simple stories – many serve a more profound purpose in ancient and modern cultures. Mythology is a collection of traditional stories that express the beliefs or values of a group of people. The stories often focus on human qualities such as good and evil.

They are often considered to be sacred and may explain how things came to be. The myths gave human emotions and qualities to the super-natural beings who were the heroes of their stories.

A myth can also be a story that tries to explain the way the world is. People have always wanted to know the reasons for natural phenomena, for example how was the Universe created, what is the reason for thunder……. Myths often include gods and goddesses and other supernatural characters who have the power to make extraordinary things happen and are popular even when people know the actual reasons for the natural phenomena. Religion, gods, and myths were created when people tried to have an answer to these questions.
