Art and Inner Spaces


“Oh my God, does art engender humanity? It awakens your humanity. But humanity has nothing to do with political theory. Political theory is in the interests of one group of humanity, or one ideal for humanity. But humanity—my heavens, that’s what proper art renders. We have a paradox. Going into the deepest aspects of inner space connects you with something that is the most vital for the outer realm.”

Joseph Campbell, interviewed by Joan Marler for the Yoga Journal (1987)

Go not outward
return into thyself:
Truth dwells in the inner man.

St. Augustine
