Midnight, On Earth
Episode 117 - The Hero's Journey w/ Joseph Campbell - Part 2
In this episode, Brynn Anderson and I listen to the second part of a series of interviews with the great one, Joseph Campbell.. An interviewer, Bill Moyers, asks very significant questions that take the listener on a journey through the core concepts that Joseph Campbell is known for. In a one-on-one conversation Joseph breaks down his views on mythology and comparative religion in a humorous, intelligent way. Let's listen to the legend together!
Joseph Campbell Bio:
Joseph John Campbell (March 26, 1904 – October 30, 1987) was an American professor of literature at Sarah Lawrence College who worked in comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work covers many aspects of the human experience. Campbell's best-known work is his book The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), in which he discusses his theory of the journey of the archetypal hero shared by world mythologies, termed the monomyth.
Since the publication of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Campbell's theories have been applied by a wide variety of modern writers and artists. His philosophy has been summarized by his own often repeated phrase: "Follow your bliss." He gained recognition in Hollywood when George Lucas credited Campbell's work as influencing his Star Wars saga and more.
