This paper argues that in contemporary Western culture, polytheism meets with strong theoretical opposition because it is implicitly subversive of powerful thought structures. The paper examines how scholars have conceptualized polytheism; subsequently, it tries to establish what are the concepts connected to a polytheistic religion and worldview, and to define what thought structures are threatened by 'polytheism.' Finally, by examining how contemporary Pagans are reconceptualising polytheism, the author points out that certain contemporary Pagan statements represent an interesting attempt to overcome dualistic thinking.
