One author isn’t enough. But that’s where many people stop.
It’s Nietzsche, THEN Jung, Frazer, Campbell, Dumezil, Vonnegut, THEN cognitive Science, THEN Haidt, Doolittle.

Campbell is misdirected without dumezil and vonnegut.
Both groups without the grammars, reciprocity, and haidt’s moral intuitions.
And western civ lost without all four generations of religion.
