Reply To: Lions, and Tigers, Athena, oh my!” with Professor Mark C.E. Peterson”


Hello Larry,

your point, “The metaphor of Medusa turning to stone those who seek inner wisdom is, in my opinion, both valid and universal.”

As I understand (Please correct me if I am wrong) Prof. Peterson’s point is that in dealing with Athena (seeking inner wisdom) Reflection is one thing that will let you bypass  Medusa otherwise Medusa will be there along with Athena, all the time. My sense, maybe subjective, that interacting with Athena, I am able to skip Medusa when the subject is not entirely personal. It’s the personal element that has the capacity to stonewall one.
