A fundamental question "The Power of Myth" doesn't confront is the existence of a creator. Campbell doesn't seem to think so. His take is that people come up with their own meanings, create stories to relay them to the group and use these stories to define themselves. Instead, I don't think humans are the pinnacle of knowledge but that our inner spirits have an inborn knowledge of a Creator who has communicated with earthlings throughout our history and we use those teachings to try to understand ourselves and our purpose. In my estimation, Campbell skips over this and seems to imagine myths as a brilliant human invention that's used to keep us in our separate tribes of meaning. He sees myths as the creators rather than the creation of religions and talks about Christian myth, for example, as not based in other-worldly teachings but rather as a result of some tribes' desires. In short, the "hero's journey" is good to know about, but I think it has deeper meaning than what he ascribes to it. He thinks that society has lost its glue because we aren't learning our common myths rather than we aren't learning the true purpose of the one common faith of humankind that teaches us, among other virtues, to do unto others and love each other.

I had been anticipating this one for ages. Literally, I think it's been on my "to read" shelf for 5 or 8 years. Sadly, it was a big disappointment. Rather than a book with tight editing and clear arguments, it was an interview with Bill Moyers that jumped all over the place with fluffy arguments, flat sound effects, and a meandering structure. I listened to 4 of the 6 parts and jumped over to the next book...

The best part was a summary/discussion of his "hero of a thousand faces," which I may get to another day.

My one take away was Campbell explaining the joy found when you're able to find away activity that avoids fear, desire, or social pressure. Most of what we do is motivated by one (or more) of those three. I don't remember his connecting it, but it seems to connect with his famous quote to "follow your bliss." This, for me, was a profound insight.

So -- there are nuggets in the dialogue, but overall there is better discussion on spirituality. ( )

I tried listening to the audiobook and I just couldn’t focus on it. Campbell sounds like he was a great teacher, but I’m apparently not interested in his lessons. ( )

Some great conversations between two very wise men shows both at their best. Joseph Campbell, who wrote some of the most influential books of the 20th century (just ask any Star Wars fan), talks about the nature of myth and how to weave their lessons into our own lives. ( )

COUPS DE CHAPEAU — Aux éditions J'ai Lu pour avoir publié directement en poche le livre d’entretiens de Bill Moyers avec Joseph Campbell : Puissance du mythe. Campbell, peu connu en France, a tenu quarante ans une chaîre de mythologie comparée à New York, qui l'a rendu plus célèbre que Mircea Eliade aux U.S.A. L'idée maîtresse de son oeuvre était " La recherche de tout ce que les mythes mondiaux avaient en commun et qui révélait dans le psychisme humain le besoin permanent d'un équilibre dépendant de principes profonds". Un livre vivifiant, qui bouscule les idées reçues et toutes faites. On en a besoin !

Theology and myth are stepsisters of truth. The one probes with questions, the other spins out tales on gossamer threads. But both serve a common mystery.

I was reminded of this recently in reading Joseph Campbell and Bill Moyer's conversation on The Power of Myth. This wonderful book is filled with pictures of Tibetan and Native American art, photographs of aboriginal initiation rites and drawings by William Blake. Adapted from a six-part television series filmed at George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch shortly before Campbell's death, the book moves from the tales of ancient Greece and India to the latest episodes of Rambo and Star Wars. Here the power of story still lives. As Campbell once said, "The latest incarnation of Oedipus, the continued romance of Beauty and the Beast, stands this afternoon on the corner of Forty-second Street and Fifth Avenue, waiting for the traffic light to change."
