Joseph Campbell Mythology Collection audio ebooks Joseph John Campbell (March 26, 1904 – October 30, 1987) was an American mythologist, writer and lecturer, best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work is vast, covering many aspects of the human experience. His philosophy is often summarized by his phrase: "Follow your bliss." Campbell's concept of monomyth (one myth) refers to the theory that sees all mythic narratives as variations of a single great story. The theory is based on the observation that a common pattern exists beneath the narrative elements of most great myths, regardless of their origin or time of creation. Campbell often referred to the ideas of Adolf Bastian and his distinction between what he called "folk" and "elementary" ideas, the latter referring to the prime matter of monomyth while the former to the multitude of local forms the myth takes in order to remain an up-to-date carrier of sacred meanings. The central pattern most studied by Campbell is often referred to as the hero's journey and was first described in The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949). An enthusiast of novelist James Joyce, Campbell borrowed the term "monomyth" from Joyce's Finnegans Wake. Campbell also made heavy use of Carl Jung's theories on the structure of the human psyche, and he often used terms such as "anima, animus" and "ego consciousness". As a strong believer in the psychic unity of mankind and its poetic expression through mythology, Campbell made use of the concept to express the idea that the whole of the human race can be seen as engaged in the effort of making the world "transparent to transcendence" by showing that underneath the world of phenomena lies an eternal source which is constantly pouring its energies into this world of time, suffering, and ultimately death. To achieve this task one needs to speak about things that existed before and beyond words, a seemingly impossible task, the solution to which lies in the metaphors found in myths. These metaphors are statements that point beyond themselves into the transcendent. The Hero's Journey was the story of the man or woman who, through great suffering, reached an experience of the eternal source and returned with gifts powerful enough to set their society free. As this story spread through space and evolved through time, it was broken down into various local forms (masks), depending on the social structures and environmental pressures that existed for the culture that interpreted it. The basic structure, however, has remained relatively unchanged and can be classified using the various stages of a hero's adventure through the story, stages such as the Call to Adventure, Receiving Supernatural Aid, Meeting with the Goddess, Atonement with the Father and Return. These stages, as well as the symbols one encounters throughout the story, provide the necessary metaphors to express the spiritual truths the story is trying to convey. Metaphor for Campbell, in contrast with comparisons which make use of the word like, pretend to a literal interpretation of what they are referring to, as in the sentence "Jesus is the Son of God" rather than "the relationship of man to God is like that of a son to a father". For example, according to Campbell, the Genesis myth from the Bible ought not be taken as a literal description of historical events happening in our current understanding of time and space, but as a metaphor for the rise of man's cognitive consciousness as it evolved from a prior animal state. audio: Joseph Campbell Collection Vol 1 Mythology and the Individual.m4a Joseph Campbell Collection Vol 2 Inward Journey East and West.m4a Joseph Campbell Collection Vol 3 The Eastern Way.m4a Joseph Campbell Collection Vol 4 Man and Myth.m4a Joseph Campbell Collection Vol 5 The Myths and Masks of God.m4a Joseph Campbell Collection Vol 6 Western Quest.m4a Joseph Campbell Experiencing the Divine.m4a Joseph Campbell Grail Legends.m4a Joseph Campbell Myth and Metaphor in Society.mp3 Joseph Campbell The Hero with a Thousand Faces.m4a Joseph Campbell The Lost Teachings of Joseph Campbell.m4a Joseph Campbell The Wisdom of Joseph Campbell with Michael Toms.m4a Joseph Campbell World Mythology and the Individual Adventure 1.m4a Joseph Campbell World Mythology and the Individual Adventure 2.m4a specs: MP3, 64kbps, run time 73 hrs 02 min 18 sec ebooks 1: Joseph Campbell Man and Time, Bollingen Series, 1983.pdf Joseph Campbell Myths to Live By.pdf The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell.pdf ebooks 2: Heinrich Zimmer Myths and Symbols in Indian Art and Civilization.pdf Joseph Campbell Myths to Live By, Condor Books.pdf Joseph Campbell.pdf Mythos Joseph Campbell.pdf Philosophy of India by Heinrich Zimmer ed Joseph Campbell.pdf Schizophrenia The Inward Journey by Joseph Campbell.pdf The Hero's Journey A Junior's Guide.pdf Track's Campbell Lectures.pdf tags: myth, monomyth, hero, mythology, journey, spiritual, transformation, God, source, enlightenment
