Mapping out a course of action is important, but it should never keep you from the things in life that matter. Oft-quoted anthropologist and mystic Joseph Campbell (Power of Myth) sums it up:
“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accet the one that is waiting for us.”
— Joseph Campbell

Twenty-five years ago, renowned scholar Joseph Campbell sat down with veteran journalist Bill Moyers for a series of interviews that became one of the most enduringly popular programs ever aired on PBS. In dialogues that adroitly span millennia of history and far-flung geography, the two men discuss myths as metaphors for human experience and the path to transcendence, touching on topics as diverse as world religion, heroic figures, and pop culture.
Now featuring newly recorded introductions by Bill Moyers, this series demonstrates that, despite superficial differences between cultures, all stories are humanity’s story.
