Why I Love Being a Humanities Major

Thursday, January 24th, 2008 • 1 Comment on Why I Love Being a Humanities Major

In writing my lecture notes for Friday on Joseph Campbell’s The Power of Myth (specifically, the section called “The First Storytellers”) I have been able to incorporate:

—William Wordsworth’s Ode: Intimations of Immortality
—Carl Jung
—the collective unconscious
—Judaism
—Buddhism
—death rituals
—the Blackfoot Indians
—hunting rituals
—animal consumption in contemporary culture
—menstruation
—female genital cutting
—William Gibson and his novel Neuromancer
—cyberspace
—science fiction

Fun!  (I know, I know… I’m a geek.)
