Synopsis: Joseph Campbell is a cultural hero finding inspirations in a wonderful mythical world. He creatively puts humanistic values and cosmic spiritual experience into the interpretation of contemporary science and art who has not only enriched research areas of mythology but also opened up the vast imagination space for human new mythology in the future. In ""Myths to Live By"", he applies knowledge of literature, philosophy, psychology, anthropology, archeology and other science to the interpretation of myths, and makes an application of mythical thinking to the interpretation of human history, eastern and western civilizations, war and peace and many other problems commonly faced by human beings. He makes use of the only truth beyond a variety of illusions and conflicts in huamn society to penetrate the ancient and modern wisdom. He believes that the role of myths in the process of integration of individuals and society, society and nature, especially the process of returning to human inherence has been infinitely magnified. He tells people: the goal of life is to make the body pulsation fit with the universe pulsation, to make your own instincts fit with nature. "" Myths to Live By"" is a very important work of Joseph Campbell selected from his speeches in Cooper Union College Forum, which is a collection of important academic ideas in his life. He is affecting listeners with his language close to the public, special expression patterns and ebullient feelings. In his book, he not only analyzes impacts of science on the myth, discusses the development of human history and encounter and collision between eastern and western cultures, explores the returning journey of peoples hearts, but also guides people to know the nature, the earth and the universe outer space. Through this book, readers can experience great leaps of human spirit in history, and also make a deep exploration of mysteries from the outside world to the bottom of our hearts. As Campbell says: people will find the road walking for thousands of years, at this moment, people will receive an eternal life in myths and dreams.

About the Author: Joseph Campbell was an American author and teacher best known for his work in the field of comparative mythology. He was born in New York City in 1904, and from early childhood he became interested in mythology. He loved to read books about American Indian cultures and frequently visited the American Museum of Natural History in New York, where he was fascinated by the museum’s collection of totem poles. Campbell was educated at Columbia University, where he specialized in medieval literature, and, after earning a master’s degree, continued his studies at universities in Paris and Munich. Throughout his life, he traveled extensively and wrote prolifically, authoring many books, including the four-volume series The Masks of God, Myths to Live By, The Inner Reaches of Outer Space, and A Skeleton Key to Finnegans Wake. Campbell died in 1987. In 1988, a series of television interviews with Bill Moyers, The Power of Myth, introduced his views to millions of people.
