When Bill Moyers sat across from Joseph Campbell a quarter-century ago to begin a series of conversations that would continue over two summers, neither of them could anticipate the extraordinary impact of their collaboration.

When "Joseph Campbell & The Power Of Myth With Bill Moyers" was originally broadcast on PBS, it fired the imagination and intellect of millions. Now updated, the series is a vibrant collection of exceptional insights by a great storyteller, teacher and lecturer.

In lively, expansive dialogues, the two men discuss how myths are clues to the spiritual core of human nature and open vistas into the human experience across the ages, revealing our innermost dreams and aspirations for self-fulfillment, social collaboration and the possibility of transcendence.
