Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth

"Are myths just foolish old stories believed by the gullible and the superstitious? Or do they still exert a powerful pull on our minds and in our lives?" In this classic PBS series, renowned teacher and storyteller Joseph Campbell joins Bill Moyers in exploring the meaning myths have in our daily lives. Each of the six episodes focuses on a character or theme found in mythologies of various cultures and religions. In his lively discussions with Moyers, Campbell argues eloquently that these timeless archetypes continue to exert a powerful pull on our unconscious.
