In this episode of The Examined Life, Phil Kallberg talks about the monomyth, the idea that all stories follow the same universal pattern. He further argues the reason this pattern is universal is that it is a reflection of the story of Christ's saving of humanity and other stories cannot help but use that pattern. I conclude by covering some criticism of the monomyth. (January 18, 2021)
