November 25th, 1 pm:
on Joseph Campbell’s explorations
of human consciousness
Sunday, November 25th — 1:00 pm (note early start time)
Walker Brents III investigates the writings and thought of Joseph Campbell, whose influence on the creative work of filmmakers, poets and novelists over the past half century has been profound and pervasive.
A seminal late 20th century sage, Campbell wrote and lectured tirelessly, synthesizing global mythologies and in the process pioneering a new zeitgeist. Inevitably, our conception of his work has become limited to a few simplified aspects — the arc of the hero being the prime example. But so much more is to be found in Campbell’s thought.
“Walker Talks” is a monthly series of talks by Walker Brents III on subjects ranging from bits of mythology to the works of poets and philosophers, and beyond. On the fourth Sunday of each month, barring the summer months.
