Jason Reza Jorjani, PhD, is a philosopher and author of Prometheus and Atlas, World State of Emergency, Lovers of Sophia, Novel Folklore: The Blind Owl of Sadegh Hedayat, Iranian Leviathan: A Monumental History of Mithra’s Abode, and Prometheism.

Here he describes many facets associated with the archetype of Prometheus: the creator of humanity, the rebel, the trickster, the martyr, the wise titan, the visionary, and the daemonic force behind science and technology. He argues that if humanity does not become conscious of Prometheus’ mesmeric power, we will continue to blindly fall under the spell of our technological power – to our own detriment. He maintains that a deeper understanding of Prometheism is an antidote to the pitfalls of either fatalism or authoritarianism.

Many viewers will know that Jason Reza Jorjani has suffered from libel and persecution as a result of his, generally misunderstood, political views. He is a brilliant scholar who has now been unfairly disgraced and is forced to fight a legal battle, while continuing his research and writing, without any regular employment. Therefore we have set up this “Go Fund Me” page in order to assist this worthy individual. Please visit and contribute generously.
