Joseph Campbell

Joseph John Campbell (March 26, 1904 – October 30, 1987) was an American Professor of Literature at Sarah Lawrence College who worked in comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work covers many aspects of the human experience. Campbell's magnum opus is his book The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), in which he discusses his theory of the journey of the archetypal hero found in world mythologies. Since the book's publication, Campbell's theory has been consciously applied by a wide variety of modern writers and artists. His philosophy has been summarized by his own often repeated phrase: "Follow your bliss."

This is the trailer for Fing Joe. I haven't seen it but it looks interesting.

Contributed by Chuck Kao

This film was inspired by the works of Joseph Campbell who was the King of Myth. He documented myths and stories from all around the world--thats actually where Disney got many of their ideas from--then he analyzed them compared them and found one common theme in them all: The Hero's Journey There are three distinct parts of the journey: separation, initiation, and return. I will go into detail if there is interest but the moral of the story is that we are ALL Heros on a journey and we do have a purpose that desires to be manifested. "Follow your bliss." "The Universe will open doors where there were only walls" More may come lets see the votes. BUT WATCH THAT MOVIE! IT WILL CHANGE YOU LIFE IN AMAZING WAYS!
