For Pheadrus read both Plato's book by the same name, and Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

I think Heart of Darkness was Joseph Conrad. I never got to the second page with that story. Joseph Campbell is an American treasure. He was a mythologist who argued that we need to look at cultures in a relentlessly comparative manner to find those ideas that are universal. He found them in myths. He is also good at showing the shift from a religious world-view to our modern secular view. He was the inspiration for the themes underlying Star Wars, and he became Lucas's mentor. There are a ton of great documentaries out there.

My favorite book by him is Myths to Live By. You might like it, James.

ok campbell attended a dead show late in life and called deadheads" the planets newest tribe"

read heart of darkness it's the story that francis ford coppolla used as the basis for apocalypse now

it was published in about 1913 i believe so it is a dry read but its good a story about british imperialism dominating the ivory trade

I did a presentation based on Jungian archetypes on ""Spinning and the Grateful Dead Exeprience". Had I known about Campbell at that time, I would have used him more (well, maybe not using him was a refresher for those used Campbell!). If you like Campbell, go read Eliade Mirsaidi.
