In Response To: Reflections of the work of David McClellan as it pertains to these Boards (OJoan)
Good post -- thought-provoking and debatable. I think I agree with two of the posters who say that humor is a sign of good health -- with one qualification, only if it's not at the expense of others. Another sign of good health is being able to think well about others.
Now, about esoteric literature. What McClellan says may have some truth to it on a practical, sociological level. However, good children's stories transcend all levels to show the hidden mysteries in all humans and in life. (Source -- John Anthony West, Serpent in the Sky). I'm also thinking of Joseph Campbell as I write this.
