Introducing the series of interviews he did with Joseph Campbell (titled The Power of Myth), Bill Moyers explains Campbell’s approach to myth and how it developed. In doing so, he observes that:
“If in modern times, myths have lost some of their hold over politics, religion and art, they remain, nonetheless, a powerful landmark in the personal search for meaning.”
I like that statement!
