Exploring CultureJoseph Campbell - Masks of God

Joseph Campbell published a four volume series called The Masks of God between 1962 and 1968. The work represents almost a lifetime of exploring most of the cultures of the world. Joseph Campbell had the superb ability to probe the mysteries of life through the eyes of many cultures. I know of no other work as broad and as deep as The Masks of God.

Joseph Campbell was interviewed by Bill Moyers in a public televisions series called The Power of Myth.  The video series and the works below present a man who truly did "follow his bliss".   Please see the works of Joseph Campbell for an complete list of the works reviewed in Shared Visions Unlimited Reviews.
