The Hero with a thousand faces

This TED Talk discusses modern "myths" and uses the ideas of Joseph Campbell.

or you can watch the original miniseries about Cambell's work on Youtube.

The bad news?

I ran across a lecture series on mythology in the ancient world, and the professor pointed out that Campbell tended to cherry pick his examples to fit his ideas... so think of this as an editorial on myth, not as a true history or news report....
