Religion (and knowledge) are Social, and Created by Interaction

Just in case someone wanted to claim they had ‘their own private religion,’

“The object of sublimation, an imaginary object or a non-object, is essentially social; there can no more be individual money than there can be individual religion, no more individual language than individual knowledge.”
Castoriadis, Cornelius. 1984. “Epilogomena to a theory of the soul which has been presented as a science,” in Crossroads in the Labyrinth. Cambridge [MA]: MIT Press, p. 38
