Finding in the world's myths — its sacred stories — a way to talk about experiences shared across time and space, Doniger champions the cause of comparative mythology as she expertly taps a wealth of traditions — from the Hebrew Bible to the Bhagavad Gita.

Margaret Anne Doody

A timely meditation on what comparative studies might mean. . . . The Implied Spider wrestles with the problems of carrying out the kind of study represented by Splitting the Difference -a cross-cultural comparison of different stories from different areas of the world, different tribes, different languages.
