OBEYING OUR OWN CREATIONS
God and Disenchantment in Amazon's World
Tuesday, 12 November 2019

A century ago, Max Weber declared that the modern Western world was disenchanted:

gods and spirits were pushed aside by rationalizing forces, especially science and

capitalism. But Weber also worried about a new type of enchantment, that people

had become subjected to forces of our own making that were increasingly out of

our control. This lecture explores disenchantment and enchantment in a world

dominated by Amazon.com, the epitome of rationalization, and the purveyor of

magical commodities.

Date: Tuesday, 12 November 2019

Time: 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm 

Venue: Chapter Hall, St Mary’s Cathedral

Sponsored by Most Rev. Anthony Fisher OP,
