Episode 99 of our book read/podcast covering major topics in various fields of psychology moves us into PSYCHOLOGY OF RELIGION! This summer we are going to discuss religion from a psychological and historical perspective as we investigate the evolutionary origins and modern social systems of religion.

In this episode we discuss LOVECRAFT and OCCULTISM with John L. Steadman, author of Aliens, Robots & Virtual Reality Idols in the Science Fiction of H. P. Lovecraft, Isaac Asimov and William Gibson (2020) and H. P. Lovecraft & the Black Magickal Tradition (2015). We discuss how Lovecraft influenced modern occultism, why individuals may be drawn to Lovecraft or Lovecraftian entities in their occult practices, utilization of magic in ritual, and some ranting about grading student papers.
