Die Heldenreise ist der großartigste geistige Entwurf und die wirksamste Lebenshilfe der Menschheit, so etwas wie ihre in Geschichten gesammelte Weisheit. Das Abenteuer des Helden, der Kampf des Helden mit dem Drachen und die Befreiung des Schatzes der geraubten Seele wird seit Urzeiten von allen Völkern und in allen Kulturen erzählt. In der Abenteuergeschichte, die Heldenreise genannt wird, geht es nicht darum, dass ein Held irgendwelche Bösewichter, fiesen Aliens oder hässlichen Monster abmurkst. Das ist eine symbolische Geschichte und die muss in die eigentliche Story übersetzt werden. Und da geht es um den Kampf eines Menschen mit den Dämonen in seiner Brust, um das Überwinden von inneren oder äußeren Problemen und das Werden eines Menschen zu einem Helden. Es ist also im Grunde keine Abenteuer- sondern eine Entwicklungs-Geschichte. Es ist eine Reise zu Heldentum. Diese uralte Geschichte finden wir, frisch und aufregend, auch noch in unserer Zeit, und zwar in tausenden von Filmen. Joachim Hammanns Analyse der Heldenreise ist für Drehbuchautoren, Filmschaffende und Filminteressierte völlig unverzichtbar, weil all die vielen einzelnen Schritte erklärt und an Filmbeispielen belegt werden, die am Ende zu Heldentum führen. Damit ist Die Heldenreise im Film die genaueste und ausführlichste Darstellung der Struktur eines Drehbuchs. Aber die Heldenreise ist von unseren Vorfahren ja nicht für das damals noch unbekannte Medium Film konzipiert worden und nicht für Drehbuchautoren gedacht gewesen, und letztlich begnügt sie sich auch nicht damit zu erzählen, wie die durchschnittlichen Männer oder die unglücklichen Frauen so und so vieler Märchen, Mythen und Filme zu großen Helden und Heldinnen werden. Es geht um mehr und um sehr viel Wichtigeres: Die Heldenreise will uns allen, den Zuschauern, den Leserinnen, den Zuhörern, Ihnen und mir helfen, mit unseren Problemen fertig zu werden und uns zu selbstsicheren, gesunden und vielleicht sogar glücklichen Menschen zu entwickeln, mit den Worten der Heldenreise: Zu 'Helden' und 'Heldinnen'.

In Myths to Live By, Joseph Campbell explores the enduring power of the universal myths that influence our lives daily and examines the myth-making process from the primitive past to the immediate present, returning always to the source from which all mythology springs; the creative imagination.Campbell stresses that the borders dividing the earth have been shattered; that myths and religions have always followed the certain basic archetypes and are no longer exclusive to a single people, region, or religion. He shows how we must recognize their common denominators and allow this knowledge to be of use in fulfilling human potential everywhere. With a foreword by Johnson E. Fairchild. This digital edition is the first ebook issued as part of the Collected Works of Joseph Campbell series; it is newly illustrated and redesigned.

Joseph Campbell famously defined myth as ''other people's religion.'' But he also said that one of the basic functions of myth is to help each individual through the journey of life, providing a sort of travel guide or map to reach fulfillment - or, as he called it, bliss. For Campbell, many of the world's most powerful myths support the individual's heroic path toward bliss. In Pathways to Bliss, Campbell examines this personal, psychological side of myth. Like his classic bestselling books Myths to Live By and The Power of Myth, Pathways to Bliss draws from Campbell's popular lectures and dialogues, which highlight his remarkable storytelling and ability to apply the larger themes of world mythology to personal growth and the quest for transformation. Here he anchors mythology's symbolic wisdom to the individual, applying the most poetic mythical metaphors to the challenges of our daily lives. Campbell dwells on life's important questions. Combining cross-cultural stories with the teachings of modern psychology, he examines the ways in which our myths shape and enrich our lives. He explores the many insights of Carl Jung; the notion of self as the hero; and how East and West differ in their approaches to the ego. The book also includes an extensive question-and-answer session that ranges from mythological readings of the Bible to how the Hero's Journey unfolds for women. With his usual wit and insight, Campbell draws connections between ancient symbols and modern art, schizophrenia and the Hero's Journey. Along the way, he shows how myth can help each of us truly identify and follow our bliss.

Joseph Campbell (1904-1988) was one of the most well-known and popular scholars of myth and comparative religion of the twentieth century. His work, however, has never fully received the same amount of scholarly interest and critical reflection that some of his contemporaries have received. In this book, based on extensive research in the Joseph Campbell Archive in Santa Barbara, Ritske Rensma shows that reflecting on C.G. Jung's influence on Campbell greatly furthers our understanding of these ideas, and that once this goal is achieved it becomes obvious that Campbell was a scholar whose ideas are still of significance today. Following Jung's lead, Campbell put great emphasis on the innate structures of the mind, an approach which pre-echoes the current 'evolutionary turn' in fields such as cognitive theory, psychology, psychiatry and neurobiology. This study will therefore not just be of interest to students and scholars interested in psychological approaches to the study of religion as well as Jung and Campbell, but also to those with an interest in recent developments in the above-mentioned fields
