Varieties of secularism in a secular age by Michael Warner( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'What does it mean to say that we live in a secular age?' This apparently simple question opens into the massive, provocative, and complex A Secular Age, where Charles Taylor positions secularism as a defining feature of the modern world, not the mere absence of religion, and casts light on the experience of transcendence that scientistic explanations of the world tend to neglect. In Varieties of Secularism in a Secular Age, a prominent and varied group of scholars chart the conversations in which A Secular Age intervenes and address wider questions of secularism and secularity. The distinguished contributors include Robert Bellah, José Casanova, Nilüfer Göle, William E. Connolly, Wendy Brown, Simon During, Colin Jager, Jon Butler, Jonathan Sheehan, Akeel Bilgrami, John Milbank, and Saba Mahmood."--Jacket
Rethinking secularism by Craig J Calhoun( Book )

16 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays presents groundbreaking work from an interdisciplinary group of leading theorists and scholars representing the fields of history, philosophy, political science, sociology, and anthropology. The volume will introduce readers to some of the most compelling new conceptual and theoretical understandings of secularism and the secular, while also examining socio-political trends involving the relationship between the religious and the secular from a variety of locations across the globe. In recent decades, the public has become increasingly aware of the important role religious commitments play in the cultural, social, and political dynamics of domestic and world affairs. This so called ''resurgence'' of religion in the public sphere has elicited a wide array of responses, including vehement opposition to the very idea that religious reasons should ever have a right to expression in public political debate. The current global landscape forces scholars to reconsider not only once predominant understandings of secularization, but also the definition and implications of secular assumptions and secularist positions. The notion that there is no singular secularism, but rather a range of multiple secularisms, is one of many emerging efforts to reconceptualize the meanings of religion and the secular. Rethinking Secularism surveys these efforts and helps to reframe discussions of religion in the social sciences by drawing attention to the central issue of how ''the secular'' is constituted and understood. It provides valuable insight into how new understandings of secularism and religion shape analytic perspectives in the social sciences, politics, and international affairs."--Provided by publisher

El poder de la religión en la esfera pública( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Muchas de las opiniones comunes sobre la religión y la vida pública son mitos que tienen poco que ver con la realidad política y social o con la experiencia cotidiana. Por ejemplo, la religión no es ni meramente privada ni puramente irracional. Y la esfera pública tampoco es un ámbito de franca deliberación racional ni un espacio pacífico de acuerdo libre de coacción. En los últimos años, en medio de una extendida recuperación del interés por la relevancia pública de la religión, son las categorías mismas de lo religioso y lo secular las que se reexaminan, reelaboran y replantean. Es lo que hacen, en este libro, cuatro destacados pensadores y representantes de la filosofía política y social contemporánea: Jürgen Habermas, Charles Taylor, Judith Butler y Cornel West. Se recogen aquí sus intervenciones en un coloquio sobre ±el poder de la religión en la esfera pública, tanto sus propias exposiciones como su posterior diálogo mutuo. Cada uno de ellos en su peculiar estilo intelectual y, traspasando los confines de las disciplinas académicas, desde un fuerte compromiso público. Juntos representan algunas de las voces filosóficas más originales e influyentes de hoy, y abarcan el espectro de la teoría crítica más reciente, del pragmatismo y el posestructuralismo a la teoría feminista y la teoría crítica de la raza, la hermenéutica o la filosofía del lenguaje. La presente edición española se completa con una conversación entre Jürgen Habermas y Eduardo Mendieta sobre la relevancia filosófica de la conciencia postsecular y la sociedad mundial multicultural
