Campbell, Joseph.

Thou Art That. Transforming Religious Metaphor.


DKK 125,00

Joseph Cambell provides a new but not novel basis for our understanding of the Judeo-Christian tradition. He is preoccupied with solving the enormous problems that flow from institutional religion’s ongoing misinterpretation of spiritual metaphors as historical facts. Metaphor comes from the Greek “meta”, a passingover, or a going from one place to another, and “phorein”, to move or to carry. Metaphors carry us from one place to another, they enable us to cross boundaries tha woulotherwise be closed to us.
