Listen to Mr. McLeod discuss the book, The Power of Myth, by Joseph Campbell. First published in 1988, it was republished in 2011, indicating just how relevant its content continues to be.
Campbell, a mythologist, has conversations with a journalist about how all of human life (past and present) repeats the themes from ancient myths. Why is the myth of the flood represented in so many different cultures? Why does Star Wars, and the heroes of these films, have such a huge fan base?
You’ll find answers to these questions and more within Campbell’s book.
Some details taken from goodreads.com…The Power of Myth has had almost 33,000 ratings on this site, and over one thousand reviews. Wow!
