The story of paradise (Genesis 2-3) is probably one of the best known texts in world literature. It has had a very rich reception history over many centuries. Genesis 2-3 formulates fundamental premises and problems of human self-understanding in the Western world. Why is the world in which we live seen as a "paradise lost"? Why might human knowledge be problematic? Why does human society have a patriarchal structure? Why is human existence limited in terms of time? Using multidisciplinary approach, this volume explores the historical meanings and the many ways in which this narrative has been received.
