Joseph Campbell continues exploring C.G. Jung’s idea of the Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious by looking at Jung’s concept of the Persona/Personae — the aspects of one’s personality that been shaped from outside, by the society in which one lives. In particular Campbell focusses on the ways that Asian and Western societies approach this.

The lecture from which this clip was taken has been released as the first program in Mythos I — The Shaping of Our Mythic Tradition (https://www.jcf.org/works/titles/the-shaping-of-our-mythic-tradition/)
