Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth With Bill Moyers

A several hour-long interview with the brilliant academic of world religions, this work is extremely informative and should be viewed by anyone interested in history, cultures, religions, or why life is as we know it. Campbell is a master at explaining the commonality of the human psyche regardless of place or time and the importance that myth/legions/religions/rituals have for all people. Campbell is definitely at his best when discussing tribal or the inappropriately called primitive religions and tends to speak somewhat disparagingly of the modern and Western ones. Perhaps this is due to the Catholic upbringing that he rejected or his pessimistic view of the world in his lifetime.
