The hero with a thousand faces by Joseph Campbell( Book )

268 editions published between 1949 and 2020 in 8 languages and held by 6,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its release in 1949, The Hero with a Thousand Faces has influenced millions of readers by combining the insights of modern psychology with Joseph Campbell?s revolutionary understanding of comparative mythology. In these pages, Campbell outlines the Hero?s Journey, a universal motif of adventure and transformation that runs through virtually all of the world?s mythic traditions. He also explores the Cosmogonic Cycle, the mythic pattern of world creation and destruction. As part of the Joseph Campbell Foundation?s Collected Works of Joseph Campbell, this third edition features expanded illustrations, a comprehensive bibliography, and more accessible sidebars. As relevant today as when it was first published, The Hero with a Thousand Faces continues to find new audiences in fields ranging from religion and anthropology to literature and film studies. The book has also profoundly influenced creative artists?including authors, songwriters, game designers, and filmmakers?and continues to inspire all those interested in the inherent human need to tell stories
The masks of God by Joseph Campbell( Book )

120 editions published between 1959 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 3,369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written between 1962 and 1968, Campbell's four-volume work The Masks of God covers mythology from around the world, from ancient to modern. Where The Hero with a Thousand Faces focused on the commonality of mythology (the "elementary ideas"), the Masks of God books focus upon historical and cultural variations the monomyth takes on (the "folk ideas"). In other words, where The Hero with a Thousand Faces draws perhaps more from psychology, the Masks of God books draw more from anthropology and history. The four volumes of Masks of God are as follows: Primitive Mythology, Oriental Mythology, Occidental Mythology, and Creative Mythology

Philosophies of India by Heinrich Robert Zimmer( Book )

62 editions published between 1951 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 1,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its first publication, Philosophies of India has been considered a monumental exploration of the foundations of Indian philosophy. Based on the copious notes of Indologist, linguist, and art historian Heinrich Zimmer, and edited by Joseph Campbell, this book is organized into three sections. "The Highest Good" looks at Eastern and Western thought and their convergence; "The Philosophies of Time" discusses the philosophies of success, pleasure, and duty; and "The Philosophies of Eternity" presents the fundamental concepts of Buddhism, Brahmanism, Jainism, Sankhya and yoga, and Tantra. This work examines such areas as the Buddhist Tantras, Buddhist Genesis, the Tantric presentation of divinity, the preparation of disciples and the meaning of initiation, and the symbolism of the mandala-palace Tantric ritual and twilight language. It also delves into the Tantric teachings of the inner Zodiac and the fivefold ritual symbolism of passion. Appendices, a bibliography, and general and Sanskrit indexes are included." --

The king and the corpse; tales of the soul's conquest of evil by Heinrich Robert Zimmer( Book )

58 editions published between 1948 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing from Eastern and Western literatures, Heinrich Zimmer presents a selection of stories linked together by their common concern for the problem of our eternal conflict with the forces of evil. Beginning with a tale from the Arabian Nights, this theme unfolds in legends from Irish paganism, medieval Christianity, the Arthurian cycle, and early Hinduism. In the retelling of these tales, Zimmer discloses the meanings within their seemingly unrelated symbols and suggests the philosophical wholeness of this assortment of myth."
