I have been watching Campbell's "Mythos" series of lectures as I've been reading the book. Mythos 1 and 2 are currently available via Netflix streaming if anyone else is interested. Fascinating stuff!

Mythos, thanks for this information. I have really been enjoying the book, but going very slowly due to a long distance move. I'm going to check out the lectures. Welcome to Booktalk.

..."There are of course differences between the numerous mythologies and religions of mankind, but this is a book about the similarities; and once these are understood the differences will be found to be much less great than is popularly (and politically) supposed. My hope is that a comparative elucidation may contribute to the perhaps not-quite-desperate cause of those forces that are working in the present world for unification, not in the name of some ecclesiastical or political empire, but in the sense of human mutual understanding. As we are told in the Vedas: Truth is one, the sages speak of it by many names."
