For the concept from which we proceed at first can of course only be an external and merely nominal one. Meanwhile, it will belong to the preliminary understanding to note that mythology is being thought as a whole and that what is sought is the nature of this whole (thus, at first, not the individual representations). And, for this reason, only the prima materia comes into consideration in all cases. As is known, the word comes to us from the Greeks; for them it designated in the broadest sense the whole of their own particular tales,5 legends and stories, which in general go beyond6 historical time.
Herodotus places the Pelasgians17 prior to the Hellenics. For him they have—it cannot now be said through which crisis—but for him they have become the Hellenics through a crisis. Now, in another passage standing in close relation with the present one, he knows the following about the Pelasgians: namely, that they sacrificed everything to the gods, but without differentiating them through title or name. So here we still have the time of that mute, still enveloped history of the gods. Let us think ourselves back into this state where consciousness still grapples chaotically with the representations of the gods, yet without being able to draw them out of themselves or make them objective, and for just that reason without being able to separate them and explain them—where consciousness therefore is, on the whole, not in a free relation to them.
And, undoubtedly, he who would hold sway as master of this genre would understand most cleverly to deceive us in this way, to most often hold the spectator breathless and, as it were, make a fool of him. But this would in fact be the most proper description of mythology, which deceives us with the echo of a deeper meaning and entices us further without ever answering our question. 14 Historical-critical Introduction to the Philosophy of Mythology Or, who has ever succeeded in bringing these lost, directionless, wandering tones into a real harmony?
