  Mythological and Archetypal Approaches  I.Definitions and Misconceptions The myth critics study the so-called archetypes or archetypal patterns. They wish to reveal about the people ’  s mind and character. Myth is the symbolic projection of the people’s hopes, values, fears, and aspirations. The illustration is Pandora’s Box. According to mythology, Pandora’s Box is the source of all misfortune but also hope.  Both mythological criticism and the psychological approach are concerned with the motives that underlie human behavior. Comparisons between these two approaches  Psychology tends to be experimental and diagnostic; it is related to biological science. Mythology tends to be speculative and philosophical; its affinities are with religion, anthropology, and cultural history.
