Prophet of the Electric Age: Marshall McLuhan’s Post-Curial CatholicismMission and Catholic Identity Publications
AbstractThe author explores the Catholicism of Herbert Marshall McLuhan, a Canadian literary scholar and communications theorist. The author notes that McLuhan's Catholicism seldom surfaces in the writings of his biographers. Higgins believes McLuhan's Catholicisim deserves a fuller exploration since faith was profoundly constitutive in his life and thought. The author also claims that McLuhan's reasons for conversion differentiated him from the conventional intellectual.
