Deep Symbols: Their Postmodern Effacement and Reclamation
– by Edward Farley
Farley introduces the concept of multiprenia. “Multiphrenia is a consciousness structured by a variety of value systems born in conflicting cultural worlds. Its effects are many. It means being subject to the demands of a variety of groups, tong between obligations and even between realities. And with that comes an enduring sense of inadequacy, failure, and high anxiety. … Whose voice, which world, what cultural constituency sounds the bell of conscience, the sense of right and wrong.”
This frame speaks the reality of living in this time and calls us, in our faithfulness, to ask larger questions about what it means to live integrated and whole as followers of Christ.
