Campbell, Joseph (1904-1987)

Renewal myths and rites of the primitive hunters and planters - Dallas, TX Spring Publications 1989 - 51p.; bibliog. notes - (Eranos lectures: 9) .

'...was a lecture presented originally at the 1959 Eranos Conference in Ascona, Switzerland, and appeared in the Eranos Jahrbuch 28--1959, pp. 407-57.'

'Campbell marvelously presents contrast the animal-taught and the plant-taught primitive societies. He then accounts for the likeness among different mythologies, exploring diffusions from Old World to New. Primitive renewal reminds us that life now on this sacred earth--rather than the promised land to come--is what really matters.'
