really liked it
bookshelves: philosophy

This is an important book that I will hold onto and attempt to reread in the future when I may have more knowledge under my belt regarding history, philosophy, and mythology. I think that solid knowledge in these areas is important as an anchor of understanding when reading a book with such broad scope or transcendental type thinking. As much as I respect Joseph Campbell, he did not effectively anchor together the information and present it in a way that will stick with me. I felt like I was seeing the tip of the iceberg, but not fully seeing the meaning, depth, and connections of the mythological and folklore examples.
