Featured Video: Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s journey

Joseph John Campbell was an American mythologist, writer and lecturer, best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work is vast, covering many aspects of the human experience. He is the pioneer of the concept of the monomyth and the “hero’s journey” model of mythological and human experience in his classic 1949 book The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Since publication of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Campbell’s theory has been consciously applied by a wide variety of modern writers and artists. The best known is perhaps George Lucas, who has acknowledged a debt to Campbell regarding the stories of the Star Wars films. The hero’s journey model is widely used in contemporary heroism education and promotion material, projects and non-profits.
