Joseph Campbell Discussion

With Jeff”s extended comment under the post below (#40) about how he got involved with Joseph Campbell and the comments following it, we should be able to generate some kind of converstaion about Campbell. I admire his work, but do have some questions. I am sure Jeff has heard these in some form or orther. Questions like is Campbell’s work really relevant to today’s world since he focused on “primitive” cultures? Or what does the “Bumper Sticker” philosophy “Follow Your Bliss” mean? So I would like to try to come at this from a different angle.

Is anybody familiar with Spiral Dynamics? Or go here for more info.

How does Campbell fit into this concept? Any comments are more than welcome.
