In the 1970s and 1980s – Mentor was (arguably helpfully) depicted as a “simulacrum” in the form of a benevolent, advisor, guide and surrogate to Telemachus, Odysseus's son in Homer’s Odyssey. He has been depicted as an avuncular, supportive guide to Homer’s son. Interestingly, and with some irony, according to Colley in her British Education Research Association paper (2001) Mentor has been depicted differently.
