Joseph Campbell Mythology The Hero with a Thousand Faces [pack] 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 mono-myth (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 mono-myth 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 "mono-myth" 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 01 Collection Vol 1 Mythology and the Individual.m4a 01 Collection Vol 2 Inward Journey East and West.m4a 01 Collection Vol 3 The Eastern Way.m4a 01 Collection Vol 4 Man and Myth.m4a 01 Collection Vol 5 The Myths and Masks of God.m4a 01 Collection Vol 6 Western Quest.m4a 01 Experiencing the Divine.m4a 01 Grail Legends.m4a 01 Myth and Metaphor in Society.m4a 01 The Hero with a Thousand Faces.m4a 01 The Lost Teachings of Joseph Campbell.m4a 01 The Wisdom of Joseph Campbell with Michael Toms.m4a 01 World Mythology and the Individual Adventure 1.m4a 01 World Mythology and the Individual Adventure 2.m4a Joseph Campbell - History & Mythology cover.jpg Joseph Campbell - History & Mythology A.mp3 Joseph Campbell - History & Mythology B.mp3 01 Myth and Metaphor in Society [speed adjusted].mp3 pics 001 Joseph Campbell.jpg 002 Joseph Campbell.jpg 003 Joseph Campbell.jpg 004 Joseph Campbell.jpg 005 Joseph Campbell.jpg 006 Joseph Campbell.jpg 007 Joseph Campbell.jpg 008 Joseph Campbell.jpg 009 Joseph Campbell.jpg 010 Joseph Campbell.jpg 011 Joseph Campbell.jpg text ebooks 1 Joseph Campbell - A Fire in the Mind - Authorized Biography 406pp.pdf Joseph Campbell - Myths to Live By 146pp.pdf Joseph Campbell - The Hero With a Thousand Faces 497pp.pdf Joseph Campbell - The Power of Myth.pdf Man and Time - Foreword by Joseph Campbell.pdf Myths and Symbols in Indian Art and Civilization - Edited by Joseph Campbell.pdf Philosophies of India by Joseph Campbell.pdf The Hero with a Thousand Faces - Joseph Campbell.pdf The Politics of Myth - C.

I always loved Joseph Campbell. The Hero With A Thousand Faces is so much better than The Villain With A Thousand Personalities...
