Works by Campbell: The Collected Lectures of Joseph Campbell
Audio Lectures Home
From the Star Wars trilogy to the Grateful Dead, Joseph Campbell has had a profound impact on our culture, our beliefs, and the way we view ourselves and the world. Provocative and exhilarating, the approximately 90 titles that will ultimately comprise The Collected Lectures of Joseph Campbell offer a glimpse into one of the great minds of our time, drawing together his most wide-ranging and insightful talks.
Our individual lectures are about 60 minutes each. They are organized into thematic volumes which are then collected into series. Currently, we have two complete series with a third underway.
Series I – lectures up to 1970
Always at his best as an impromptu speaker, Campbell shines in these recordings, both as a scholar and as a master storyteller. These lectures are from early in his career, including recordings of his famous lectures at the Cooper Union.
Series II – lectures from 1970 to 1978
Lectures from the middle of Campbell’s career, starting just after the moon landing in 1969 and counting to the late 1970s.
Series III – lectures from 1983 to 1986
Lectures from the end of Campbell’s career, starting in the early eighties.
