Prevalence of Hero's Journey[edit]

I don't have a handy source, but I've heard much ranting on this point: that the "monomyth" is incredibly overrated, but since Lucas took it up it's become standard. - David Gerard (talk) 07:36, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

New Age[edit]

Never heard that before. So who took up his stuff? Details! - David Gerard (talk) 07:36, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

He was all over the place, especially in neopagan circles. He gets invoked a lot by Tarot readers like Rachel Pollack and neopagans like Starhawk. This is how I heard of him well before he became a PBS celebrity. - Smerdis of Tlön (talk) 00:48, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
