Abstract
I provide a classification of varieties of pantheism. I argue that there are two different kinds of commitments that pantheists have. On the one hand, there is an ontological commitment to the existence of a sum of all things. On the other hand, there is an ideological commitment: either collectively or distributively, the sum of all things is divine.
Keywords pantheism  mereology  ontological argument  quantification  ideology  divinity  divine  theism  modality  modal realism
