Part 1
Part I
"Philosophy begins in wonder," said by Plato. Learning to live in two totally different worlds (the prestigious private school world and the urban, single-parent world), young Campbell plays "hopscotch" from wonder to wonder searching for identity, manhood, and meaning, amidst home robberies, racism, and black-on-black crime. Meet the GenX 80's: R2D2 & C3PO, WWF, BMX, MTV, BET, and more...
Part 2
Part II
Disappointments give birth to determination: Ivy League, "top of the world." But Campbell must be "top of the world" in the underworld, too: West 42nd Street, New York City, at a time when it was scarier than scary. Then, beyond "lonely at the top," Campbell finds it can be quite a lie "at the top," as well. Through academia, crime, philosophy, and evil spirits, Campbell wants answers. Life can be deadly.
Part 2
Part III
With Humanism and Hedonism just about "off the team" now, Campbell seeks some type of reform in "settling down" and rehearsing his good deeds. He even marries his long-time girlfriend and best friend. However, Campbell still aches to know the answer to life's most basic questions: Origin, Meaning, Morality, and Destiny (along with Peace and the riddance of guilt). Behold, how a skeptical, anti-Christian atheist comes to find Christ as the summation of perfection!
