I cast my vote, too, for shutting down the anti-Semite slurs--the man's
dead now, what can he do to defend himself?--but I'm still intrigued
by the "mythobabble" comment. A cute phrase. It seems to imply that
Campbell's teachings about myth are, compared to serious scholarship,
as pop-psych love-yourself books are, compared to serious psychotherapy.
Or am I reading too much into it?
This is my dilemma:
I like Campbell. But more & more, I'm embarrassed to admit it--as if
liking Campbell were uncool now.
