What role does myth play in the conduct of our lives? Whether conscious or unconscious, myths govern our lives, channel our energies, and elect our values; thus it is critical that we bring their presence and influence to greater awareness. Using the framework of a series of provocative presentations by Joseph Campbell, we explore the role of the scientific revolution, the dialogue between east and west, the primal patterns of schizophrenia, and many other topics of psycho-mythic influence.
Required reading: Myths to Live By, Joseph Campbell.
