    One thought on “The Hero's Adventure: Power of Myth 1”

    1. This was better when I was in high school, and it doesn't hold up well to a re-listening as an adult. Campbell and Moyers' pop folklore is entertaining, but doesn't hold up to scrutiny. Campbell's content to skim the surface, but if a particular culture's myth/origin story doesn't fit with his Jung-lite interpretation, he just doesn't deal with it. Oh well, glad I came back to it, glad I decided to stop listening halfway through.

    2. Cassette version: Some interesting and inspirational content. I enjoyed hearing Campbell talk about specific myths. Unfortunately this was the minority of the content in this part.Notably, Campbell appeared to be promoting a 'new world order', gaia theory, sophia, etc. To my listening, he came very close to indicating climate change as we know it as a myth.

    3. The ideas and mythos of universal hero/heroine. Relating the ideas to modern (1980's) literature, movies, and culture. He also describes how man comes to realize his inner peace and destiny of life.
