Non-Dogmatic Campbellisims

In class today we watched and episode from the acclaimed PBS series Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth. It is basically Bill Moyers talking with the late Joseph Campbell about what he knew best, namely mythology and the human need for arch-types and symbolic structures. Pretty interesting stuff presented in interview format. I've kind of been intrigued by Campbell for awhile, a lot of writers reference him and The Power of Myth series was the source of an esotericlly funny gage on a 4th season episode of Gilmore Girls.
