About Joseph Campbell

Joseph Campbell (1904-87) began his career in 1934 as an instructor at Sarah Lawrence College, where he taught for almost forty years, and where the Joseph Campbell Chair in Comparative Mythology was established in his honor. He is the author of numerous books, including the bestselling "The Hero with a Thousand Faces." Bill Moyers is an acclaimed journalist, widely respected for his work both at CBS News and at PBS. One of his primary efforts has been to bring to television outstanding thinkers of our time, most recently in the immensely popular and highly celebrated PBS series and bestselling book "A World of Ideas." His conversations with Joseph Campbell were one of the highlights of television programming in the 1980s. Betty Sue Flowers teaches poetry and myth at the University of Texas at Austin. She is the author and coauthor of several books, including" Browning and the Modern Tradition," "Four Shields of Power," and "Daughters and Fathers."show more
