He wrote on myths and symbols; language and cognition; structuralism and psychoanalysis; religion and aesthetics; ethics and the nature of evil; theories of literature and theories of law.

These diverse subjects informed his lifelong study of ‘philosophical anthropology,’ an exploration of the forces that underpin human action and human suffering.” (New York Times )
