The Message of the Myth
By Joseph Campbell | Collaboration with Campbell
The second program of Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth with Bill Moyers.
This is part two of the six part series of conversations on PBS of the conversations between journalist Bill Moyers and author Joseph Campbell. Campbell is renowned for his life long exploration and elucidation of the myths and legends which are the universal underpinnings of human psyche and culture. Both Moyers and Campbell are charming, erudite, and unpretentious in their conversational presentation of the deep subject of religious mythology. In this segment, Campbell traces the evolution of religious metaphors and their relevance in today’s world. The subject matter is illustrated by gorgeous artwork, and the conversation between these two men is a work of art in itself. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, All Movie Guide
