The Phenomenology of Oppression : The Experience of Evil in Contemporary Goddess Religion
|Anderson, Carol S., 1958-
|iii, 53 p.
|The author explores the definition of evil in contemporary Goddess religion. Using the analysis of evil in Paul Ricoeur's book, The Symbolism of Evil, as three discrete experiences in Christianity--defilement, sin, and guilt--the author sees the equivalent experience of oppression in Goddess religion as "estrangement," "injustice," and "physical harm." A primary focus of the contemporary Goddess tradition, then, is to transform society by creating alternative power structures that do not oppress women, that overcome estrangement and injustice.
