Description

This book takes a serious look at the religious dimensions of Heathenry. In this chapter, I examine how Heathens conceive of the self and its relationship to the world. Ideas of struggle, the past, and the soul are important elements in how Heathens envision their place in the world. These concepts are important ideological resources for the construction of a dissenting vision of the human self.
