Monoimus: I have read David Miller's paper on scholarly criticisms of Campbell several times. Unfortunately, I still do not quite understand each of the seven criticisms Miller mentions. It is very important to me to understand these criticisms because the indirect criticisms my professors often lev...

This quote is extremely important to me. I am doing a BA in religious studies and anthropology right now, and I am very frustrated by the the mainstream approaches to these fields. Campbell's quote pinpoints exactly how those appraoches got their start. Or at least he gives me a general pointer. I a...

I want to say some things that I did not get a chance to before. Firstly, I took Psyche's advice and checked out Prof. Jordan Peterson from U of Toronto. I must say, he seems to be a rare bird in mainstream psychology. He is actually interested in mythology in the same way Campbell, Eliade, and Jung...

Believe it or not, after an awful lot of searching, I can find only two mainstream psychology professors in all of Canada that have a big interest in Jung. Peterson is one of them. Another is named Harry T. Hunt. He works out of Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario (the other side of the coun...

Hi Ritske, I am an undergrad student in religious studies. Soon I will be pursuing graduate (or as you in the UK say, "postgreaduate" studies). I am very curious whenever I hear of others in academia with an interest in Campbell. Please, if you do not mind telling me, at what institution are you stu...

Hi I am just new. Once before I tried to send this out, but I do not think it worked. My question was does any one know where I can get my hands on this scholarly research that supposedly exixts trying to label Campbell an ant-semite? Also I am also very interested in Pacifica. I spoke with a grad f...

Wilber's ranking of developmental levels does not bother me; it thrills me. This is because Wilber is leading the charge to find a way out of the stalemate that postmodernism got academia into (whereby no criticism of culture can be attempted without rousing an instantaneous accusation of cultural i...

What was Campbell's criticism of Durkheim? And does anybody know what, if anything, he ever said about Levi-Strauss?
