LOUBSER, Gys M.  and  DU TOIT, Calvyn C.. Resuscitating myth: Hollywood, Big History and transdisciplinary theology. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2018, vol.74, n.4, pp.1-7. ISSN 2072-8050.

Expanding our description of liturgy as an organisation of technics structuring desire, we describe the accompanying myth as a technic of knowing. Drawing on transdisciplinary theology, developed from the work of Wentzel van Huyssteen, Paul Cilliers and Alfonso Montuori, we engage the cross-disciplinary construction of scientific myth by Big Historians. We argue that myth, as a transversal technic of knowing, is abundant in many spheres of our lives and bridges what Bernard Stiegler calls the persistent minimal gap between humanity and technics. Can Big Historians offer such a bridge and what does it mean when scientists use technicities developed by religious practitioners?
