Abstract

As beings of a sophisticated age residing in complex commercial and public sector environments, we may be too "civilized" to admit a belief in, and reliance upon myth; but mythical notions and concepts do make sense of our daily lives and can be shown to control our behaviour. A mythical view of life has been necessary for all beings in history, and we are no different. The young especially see little need to distinguish between myth and reality. In this thesis attributes of ideological myth theory are used to cogitate the mythological constructions of and by accounting.
