<philosophical terminology, history of philosophy> Greek term for a speech, tale, or story, as opposed to a rational explanation. See logos / mythos. Although Plato typically derided myth as inferior to analysis, Philo Judaeus incorporated it as allegorical interpretation in order to synthesize theology and philosophy. Recommended Reading: F. E. Peters, Greek Philosophical Terms: A Historical Lexicon (NYU, 1967).
