Joseph Campbell Foundation

Bringing Myth into the World…

Joseph Campbell (March 26, 1904 – October 30, 1987) was an American mythologist, writer and lecturer, best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work covers many aspects of the human experience.

Joseph Campbell Foundation is on a mission to keep Joseph Campbell’s mythic vision alive (a mission that includes publishing fifteen hardcover books and multiple digitial works, along with over fifty audio lectures and several video productions).

JCF has worked with a global community of artists, scholars, writers, educators, and questers, organized conferences and workshops with a variety of insitutions, fostered extensive and powerful online conversations, and currently sponsors over 50 local and regional community groups worldwide as part of the Foundation’s Mythological RoundTable® Program.
