Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this collection of essays and lectures, Joseph Campbell explores common religious symbols, reexamining and reinterpreting them in the context of his remarkable knowledge of world mythology.

Synopsis:

Thou Art That is a compilation of previously uncollected essays and lectures by Joseph Campbell that focus on the Judeo-Christian tradition. Here Campbell explores common religious symbols, reexamining and reinterpreting them in the context of his remarkable knowledge of world mythology. According to Campbell, society often confuses the literal and metaphorical interpretations of religious stories and symbols. In this collection, he eloquently reestablishes these metaphors as a means to enhance spiritual understanding and mystical revelation. With characteristic verve, he ranges from rich storytelling to insightful comparative scholarship. Included is editor Eugene Kennedys classic interview with Campbell in The New York Times Magazine, which brought the scholar to the publics attention for the first time.

Synopsis:

"Thou Art That" is a compilation of previously uncollected essays and lectures by Campbell that reinterpret common Judeo-Christian symbols as keys to spiritual understanding.
