Besides being a scholarly work, "Mother Right" is a myth in its own right about the struggle of human beings to overcome materialism and barbarity. Bachofen does not simply contrapose the material and spiritual, but rather he shows their complex relationship and the social dynamics they induce. "Mother Right" provides a mythological and symbolic framework for understanding such trends in our society as feminism, consumerism, populist democracy, and statism.
