hero's journey "A Practical Guide to Joseph Cambell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces" by Christopher Vogler © 1985 “There are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely as if they had never happened before.” In the long run, one of the most influential books of the 20th century may turn out to be Joseph Campbell’s THE HERO WITH A THOUSAND FACES. The book and the ideas in it are having a major impact on writing and story-telling, but above all on movie-making. Filmmakers like John Boorman, George Miller, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Francis Coppola owe their successes in part to the ageless patterns that Joseph Campbell identifies in the book.

Neuromarketing This blog is based on an interesting article I read a few days ago written by Ethan Hale (click to read) about the concept of ‘Neuromarketing’. The article suggests that marketers should start thinking of SEO as ‘social engagement optimisation’ rather than ‘search engine optimisation’. Marketing is about reaching people so it makes sense to look at our marketing efforts in terms of how our customers receive and react to our messages. ‘Neuromarketing’, as the name suggests, combines marketing with the psychology behind it to produce targeted and effective messages. It looks into the cognitive reactions of our customers in order to reach them and connect with them effectively.

Monomyth Joseph Campbell's monomyth, or the hero's journey, is a basic pattern that its proponents argue is found in many narratives from around the world. This widely distributed pattern was described by Campbell in The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949).[1] Campbell, an enthusiast of novelist James Joyce, borrowed the term monomyth from Joyce's Finnegans Wake.[2] Campbell held that numerous myths from disparate times and regions share fundamental structures and stages, which he summarized in The Hero with a Thousand Faces: A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.[3]

Neuromarketing : between influence and manipulation - Polish Journal of Management Studies - Tom Vol. 3 (2011) - Biblioteka Nauki - Yadda This subject was chosen because neuromarketing allows the marketing experts to improve their popularisation options regarding a brand, while having the potential to revolutionize the general understanding of the existent relationships between organisations and consumers. The paper was written to bring to the attention of researchers in this field - and beyond - the opportunities to reduce the gaps between the consumers' subconscious and their behaviour, in order to fulfil their desires. Therefore, it was shown how studying the sensory, cognitive and emotional reactions of consumers to stimuli related to a product or an advertisement allows the researchers to find out why consumers make the decisions they make when choosing a brand or another, without the subjectivity specific to traditional research methods.
