Abstract:

"In Pathways to Bliss, Campbell examines the personal, psychological side of myth. Like his books Myths to Live By and The Power of Myth, Pathways to Bliss draws from Campbell's popular lectures and dialogues, which highlight his storytelling and ability to apply the larger themes of world mythology to personal growth and the quest for transformation.

Here he anchors mythology's symbolic wisdom to the individual, applying the most poetic mythical metaphors to the challenges of our daily lives."--Jacket.
