    Bios and Mythos

    Joseph Campbell

    Joseph Campbell wrote this article for a collection of essays, Psychoanalysis and Culture, printed in 1951 to celebrate the sixtieth birthday of the famed psychiatrist and ethnologist, Géza Róheim. In it, he seeks to define the biological roots of the human mythic impulse.
     
    Written two years after his seminal Hero with a Thousand Faces, “Bios & Mythos” takes what was, for Campbell, a unique view of myth. In deference to Róheim, who defined myth as a mechanism for satisfying the universal human desire to return to the infant’s safety with its mother, Campbell invokes what was to become one of his favorite images for the function of myth: that of the marsupial pouch, the second womb. Here, more than elsewhere in his work, Campbell emphasizes myth as an intermediary aid that the individual can outgrow.
     
    “Bios & Mythos” is available in print as part of The Flight of the Wild Gander.

    In the clay-rich hills of the newly founded state of West Virginia, two families tentatively come together to rebuild a war-torn brickmaking business.Ewan McKay has immigrated to West Virginia with his aunt and uncle, promising to trade his skills in the clay business for financial help. Uncle Hugh purchases a brickmaking operation from a Civil War widow and her daughter, and it's Ewan's job to get the company up and running again. Ewan seeks help from Laura, the former owner's daughter, and he quickly feels a connection with her, but she's being courted by another man--a lawyer with far more social clout and money than Ewan. Resolving that he'll make the brickworks enough of a success that he can become a partner in the business and be able to afford to bring his sisters over from Ireland, Ewan pours all his energy into the new job. But when Hugh signs a bad business deal, all Ewan's hard work is put in jeopardy. As his hopes for the future crumble, Laura reveals something surprising. Can she help him save the brickworks, and will Ewan finally get a shot at winning her heart?

    Perhaps no other American president is as revered as Abraham Lincoln, whose strong faith and moral courage inspired a nation, and whose timeless words of common sense continue to influence men and women today. 	In Abraham Lincoln's Daily Treasure, readers will find daily devotional selections in a variety of subject themes. Each devotion includes Scripture, a devotional thought, a spiritual or inspirational quote from Lincoln or a related fact about his life, and take-away for personal application. This unique devotional is built around the Believer's Daily Treasure, a book Lincoln was given in 1847 upon the death of his son and that he carried with him always. Lincoln often quoted from the Believer's Daily Treasure in his addresses to the nation and included snippets from it in his letters. He also read from it for personal strength during the Civil War.	Readers who are wanting an interesting devotional, Christians looking for wisdom distilled through the lens of history, Lincoln aficionados, and history buffs will all appreciate this unique look into the life of Lincoln that is ideal for personal use or for gift-giving.
