A recent chapter on Deification

Header Image

David Litwa provides a fascinating (and to my mind accurate) survey of deification.

His article clarifies what the notion of “becoming god” amounts to, and explains the various species of deifiction: political deification, deification through beauty, deification as magic, deification as imitation, Christian deification, self-deification, deification through Gnosticism. This is all historically informative and very interesting; the kicker is that he accurately covers our own fashionable form of deification: techno-deification.

Litwa’s article is a fascinating peek into human nature and will instantly transform you into a god illuminate you.
