The AnkiDroid Collection (Part 11) – Homogenous, Machiavellianism & Theosis

Ankidroid additions related to Science, History and Philosophy.

Homogenous

Corresponding in structure because of a common origen, common ethincity. When a group talks, looks and acts the same.

Machiavellianism

Cunning, scheming and unscrupulous especially in Politics. The term Machiavellianism was dervied from the Italian author and philosopher Nicholas Machiavel (1469 –1527) who claimed that his experience and reading of history showed him that politics have always been played with deception, treachery, and crime. He is best known for his political treatise The Prince (Il Principe). He has often been called the father of modern political philosophy and political science.

Theosis

Deification: The transformative process whose aim is likeness to or or union with God as taught by the Eastern orthodix church and eastern Catholic Church. As a process of transformation, theosis is brought about by the effects of catharsis (purification of mind and body) and theoria (‘illumination’ with the ‘vision’ of God). According to Eastern Christian teachings, theosis is very much the purpose of human life.

I found Theosis discussed by Jonathan Pageau in an interview by Jordan Peterson called ‘The Perfect Mode of Being‘. Jonathan Pageau is an Orthodox Christian, professional carver, writer, and public speaker. He specializes in symbolism and traditional Christian art.
