Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth. Program 4, Sacrifice and Bliss: Transcript
Campbell discusses the role of sacrifice in myth, which symbolizes the necessity for rebirth. He also talks about the significance of sacrifice -- in particular, a mother's sacrifice for her child, and the sacrifice to the relationship in marriage -- and stresses the need for every one of us to find our sacred place in the midst of today's fast-paced, technological world.
