Welcome to the Collected Works Books Forum!

Post by David_Kudler » Sun Mar 13, 2011 6:32 pm

This forum, which we had been discussing for a while, is intended as a focussed area for the discussion of Joseph Campbell's print works--especially those that have been released as part of the Collected Works of Joseph Campbell series.

We hope that this will give both newcomers and Campbell cognoscenti a chance to discuss Campbell's specific works, discussing thought-provoking passages, clearing up questions, or pointing out questions that the texts raised.

This forum is currently under development; however, we hope to have a thread available for each of the print titles soon.

If you have a question about the Collected Works ebooks, visit the Ebook FAQ thread.

In the mean time, if you have any questions, thoughts or suggestions about this forum, please feel free to post them here.

Me too, obviously. ;)

I was reading through Thou Art That again the other day--it's been nearly a decade since we brought that book out first--and I was really blown away by it.

Et normalement qu'on se demande
qui est donc Sacha Kudler & comment
il mérite cette place exceptionnelle
entre les chefs d'œuvres du monde?

Ça serait Sasha. Une jeune photographe de grand talent et de nom particulier.

Je cherchais la photo parfaite pour le fin ce chapître... et elle l'avait pris! ;)

Thank you for the polite answer!
You know, I don't want people say
that Kudler family claims monopoly
over Campbell's work :-)

Et encore, un gros merci pour votre français, mon cher ami.

Yiddish, Arabe et d'autres langues.

Une grande leçon, évidemment. Malheureusement, nous habitons, içi, dans un pays où il faut voyager des milliers de kilomètres juste pour entendre une langue étrangère! L'éspagnol ne conte pas. Je ne sais pas pourquoi.

(D'accord, ma plus jeune fille aimerait étudier le japonais. Pourquoi? Parce qu'elle aime lire des manga.)
