In this first interview from the PBS series Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth, Bill Moyers questions Joseph Campbell on the role of the hero. Using his vast mythological knowledge, Campbell describes archetypes of heroes that arise in cultures throughout human history. He points out the similarities of spiritual heroes from Moses to Jesus to Buddha to Muhammad. Moyers asks where modern society's myths come from, and the discussion turns to movies, specifically George Lucas's Star Wars saga. Campbell touches on characters like the old teacher who guides the hero in Obi-Wan Kenobi and the compassionate hero who pretends he's an egoist like Han Solo. Campbell urges his students and listeners to follow their bliss and forge into the unknown, for that is where the hero's journey lies. It's a thoroughly engaging talk that begins this popular PBS series.
