Product Description

Explore the power of myth as it flowered in Asia

In this second volume of The Masks of God — Joseph Campbell’s major work of comparative mythology — the pre-emimenent mythologist looks at Asian mythology as it developed over the course of five thousand years into the distinctive religions of Egypt, Mesopotamia, India, China, and Japan.

The Masks of God is a four-volume study of world religion and myth that stands as one of Joseph Campbell’s masterworks. On completing it, he wrote: Its main result for me has been the confirmation of a thought I have long and faithfully entertained: of the unity of the race of man, not only in its biology, but also in its spiritual history, which has everywhere unfolded in the manner of a single symphony, with its themes announced, developed, amplified and turned about, distorted, reasserted, and today, in a grand fortissimo of all sections sounding together, irresistibly advancing to some kind of mighty climax, out of which the next great movement will emerge.

Masks of God:

  1. Primitive Mythology (Coming 2016)
  2. Oriental Mythology
  3. Occidental Mythology (Coming November 2015)
  4. Creative Mythology (Coming December 2015)
