Am I the only one who sees obvious parallels between Sartre's use of Greek mythology as a shared reference point to describe his philosophy more effectively to a lay audience and Yudkowsky's use of Harry Potter to accomplish the same goal? Or is it so obvious no one bothers to talk about it? Was that conscious on Yudkowsky's part? Unconscious? Or am I just seeing connections that aren't there?
