Their application helps to diachronically analyze the phenomena of primitive culture and mythical beliefs. In some cases, elements of structural analysis are used to identify the essence of belief in reincarnation. The scientific novelty of the work is to reveal the general essence of faith in the reincarnation in mythology and its place in the life of a modern man as a spiritual support; features of the origins of mythical motives; ways of affirming and disseminating them in the culture of peoples from antiquity to the present; features of communication of beliefs in reincarnation with the phenomena of nature and events in people's lives. The conclusion is that the disclosure of the general essence of faith in the rein- carnation in mythology makes it possible to give a scientific assessment of its significance in the modern life of the peo- ple, of each individual, and of the development of culture in general.
