MYTHOLOGY

is the academic and scholastic study of myths (stories considered greatly exaggerated and modified over time). Sigmund Freud suggested that myths are similar to dreams in that they contain hidden meaning which can throw light on the cultures from which the myths (which in some cases dreams recorded as myths) came from can highlight the society and culture.

MYTHOLOGY: "The concept of mythology involves stories and tales which are passed between generations involving creatures and stories which are believed to be a myth."
