Vissi, Clemsy, Auntie P. (where's Alfred the Faithful Butler ?)----- You're welcome. I have to get back to more of a sense of my Campbell roots. He parted with conservative Catholicism (like maybe parting from the Just War theory a little to be more pacifist) to embark on the mythic journey from Cel...

Monogamy and the King God

hey jdw This community is really habit-forming but I guess it must be a good habit. You make a good point, although I now must find my portrait with the reindeer !! i think monogamy was not a feature of this agarian societies especially when it comes to the characterization of their king/gods. Odin ...

Grazie, Noman I have been contracted to write a reader's guide to Don Delillo. Sort of a light literary analysis for a mixed audience, no need to break out heavy relativist and skeptical post modern thinkers (thank the Goddess and God ) Three very beloved subjects this favorite subject allows me to ...

Paul GIaimo is Back

Hello Vissi and Ivor Orr and everyone ! I just wanted to share my experiences since I left posting the jcf long ago. I felt they were appropriate to a writer's forum.

Blessings Raphael and All, Sorry I have been gone so long. While I am unable to respond to your post Raphael with the same length and intensity with which you post, I am immediately inspired to a couple of thoughts. One, I think the ethics of Jesus, apart from their tragic misinterpretations by Empe...

But more recently I have experimented with Buddhism, Hindu Meditation and read in many other faiths. M...

Hello again. I love this subject. So right on about there not being time to engage the spirt, to contemplate or meditate or read. To balance the inner life for me with the outer political/teaching active life of talking philosophy to so many students and young writers. What happens if I do not thoug...

Ciao all

Mirror, Mirror, where the crew passes into the parallel universe where the Federation is evil and Klingons are good and Spock has that cool goatee.

Cultural Relativism to me was the theme- at the time I was sent away to a new school-
with "non-Italians"
