6. Description Abstract Segal takes the case of Hollywood stars and asks whether they can be taken as gods, in which case the treatment of them--they are “idolized” and “worshiped”--can be said to bring divinity back to the world. Their myths would be their roles in films. He uses child psychiatrist D. W. Winnicott’s idea of make-believe in support of this position.
