Myths to Live By - Joseph Campbell

Posted to What Are You Reading?

Was working my way through Hero with 1,000 Faces by same author, but it was really dense and slow-gonig.

Found MTLB at the used bookstore, seemed more accessible, and it is. Talks about the confrontation between science and religion/myth, between Eastern and Western mythic conceptions of the individual, the outdate-ness of western religious symbols and ideology.

Good so far.
