About the author:
Parallel to an international law career in Germany, Switzerland and the United States, Dr. Peter Fritz Walter (Pierre) focused upon fine art, cookery, astrology, musical performance, social sciences and humanities.

He started writing essays as an adolescent and received a high school award for creative writing and editorial work for the school magazine.

After finalizing his law diplomas, he graduated with an LL.M. in European Integration at Saarland University, Germany, and with a Doctor of Law title from University of Geneva, Switzerland, in 1987.

He then took courses in psychology at the University of Geneva and interviewed a number of psychotherapists in Lausanne and Geneva, Switzerland. His interest was intensified through a hypnotherapy with an Ericksonian American hypnotherapist in Lausanne. This led him to the recovery and healing of his inner child.

In 1986, he met the late French psychotherapist and child psychoanalyst Françoise Dolto (1908-1988) in Paris and interviewed her. A long correspondence followed up to their encounter which was considered by the curators of the Dolto Trust interesting enough to be published in a book alongside all of Dolto's other letter exchanges by Gallimard Publishers in Paris, in 2005.

After a second career as a corporate trainer and personal coach, Pierre retired as a full-time writer, philosopher and consultant.

His nonfiction books emphasize a systemic, holistic, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspective, while his fiction works and short stories focus upon education, philosophy, perennial wisdom, and the poetic formulation of an integrative worldview.

Pierre is a German-French bilingual native speaker and writes English as his 4th language after German, Latin and French. He also reads source literature for his research works in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch. In addition, Pierre has notions of Thai, Khmer, Chinese and Japanese.

All of Pierre's books are hand-crafted and self-published, designed by the author. Pierre publishes via his Delaware company, Sirius-C Media Galaxy LLC, and under the imprints of IPUBLICA and SCM (Sirius-C Media).

Joseph Campbell and the Lunar Bull
 

Short Biography, Book Reviews, Quotes, and Comments

Authored by Peter Fritz Walter

'Joseph Campbell and the Lunar Bull' (Great Minds Series, Vol. 7) is a study on the great genius of one of the most influential mythology scholars of our times. The review shows that the historical transition from matriarchy to patriarchy seems to never haven taken place on the level of the unconscious. In the contrary, it appears that the intrinsic symbolism of the soul level, the content of the collective unconscious, the level of spiritual visions is one of the matriarchal goddesses and cosmic energy holders, such as the Mythic Bull or Lunar Bull, and the Serpent.

Joseph Campbell was not only one of the greatest scholars humanity has known but also a fighter for the true expression of individual soul values, autonomy, self-reliance and true democracy. He, as not many others, unveiled the hidden fascism in our Judeo-Christian root culture that traditionally murdered the out-group while preaching to love one's neighbor, thereby representing one of the most hypocrite religious paradigms around the world.

Campbell's mythology research is today backed up by the insights of Carl Jung and researchers on shamanism and entheogens such as Ralph Metzner or Jeremy Narby, as well as reports of personal experiences with matriarchal gods and goddesses manifesting through the intake of entheogens such as Ayahuasca. What we can learn from embracing mythology, as this monograph shows, is to find solutions that are viable and durable because they are integrated in the landscape of soul, and our collective unconscious, and not just green table solutions that may temporarily appeal to our rational mind.

The illustrated volume presents a short biography, reviews of all of Campbell's acclaimed books, quotes, and comments, as well as a bonus essay by Peter Fritz Walter, entitled 'The Lunar Bull' which is puts a focus upon the spiritual significance of matriarchy.
