  1. Thanks for sharing this one, Debra. I really enjoyed the discussion of Homeric vs Classical Greeks, and their various cultural positions. It reinforces and helps me understand some of your own writing on such distinctions. Hope this day finds you well!

    Much Love

    1. Dear Michael,

      You’re welcome! Agreed. The distinction between the Homeric and Classical Greeks is essential in appreciating Jung and Hillman’s ideas of “archetypes,” giving our Western roots an esoteric foundation often overlooked. Thank you for the note! I am well and hope that you are too.

  2. This reminded me of Julian Jaynes’s book, The Origin of Consciousness
    in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. The idea of having a mind dominated not by a sense of self but by gods was similar. Thanks for sharing it.
