Interpreting Maimonides by Marvin Fox
" Good if you're into medieval philosophy and if you want to read Maimonides a little more deeply but Leo Strauss' meta-esoteric introductory essay isn't helping you out at all.

However, it's probably not the thing if you don't already have an establ... " Read more of this review »

“Myth must be kept alive. The people who can keep it alive are the artists of one kind or another.”
Joseph Campbell

Joseph Campbell
“Not all who hesitate are lost. The psyche has many secrets in reserve. And these are not disclosed unless required.”
Joseph Campbell, The Hero With a Thousand Faces

Joseph Campbell
“The problem in our society and in our schools is to inclulcate, without overdoing it, the notion of education, as in the Latin educere--to lead, to bring out what is in someone rather than merely to indoctrinate him/her from the outside. (89)”
Joseph Campbell, Thou Art That: Transforming Religious Metaphor

Joseph Campbell
“The psychological dangers through which earlier generations were guided by the symbols and spiritual exercises of their mythological and religious inheritance, we today (in so far as we are unbelievers, or, if believers, in so far as our inherited beliefs fail to represent the real problems of contemporary life) must face alone, or, at best with only tentative, impromptu, and not often very effective guidance. This is our problem as modern, "enlightened" individuals, for whom all gods and devils have been rationalized out of existence.”
Joseph Campbell, The Hero With a Thousand Faces

“The job of an educator is to teach students to see vitality in themselves”
Joseph Campbell
