The Search for Meaning

Lecture by Jonathan Young

January 15, 2008, 4:00 pm   » 

Jonathan Young, Psychologist and storyteller is founding curator of the Joseph Campbell Archives. This lecture will explore the visual communication of symbol and metaphor through structural analysis of "quest stories" and search for meaning. In this lecture we will uncover the common stock of symbolism related to quest stories. Consciously or unconsciously we are contributing to the evolution and emergent fabric of this linguistic device in which complex, culturally specific meanings are communicated simply. Psychologist-storyteller Jonathan Young will draw on his work with Joseph Campbell to explore the symbolism in the Legends of the Holy Grail, the architecture of quest stories and the subterrain of nonverbal communication.
