362 pp. "Campbell's seamless integration of art, literature and philosophy shows how the 19th century's focus on individuality, imagination, and irony eventually began to privilege artifice and fraud over nature and simplicity. Ultimately, this laid the foundation for the 20th century's philosophical and cultural apotheosis of lying, exemplified by figures such as Freud, Wittgenstein, and Derrida -- all of whom made deception and ambiguity a main thematic component of their thought."
