Varieties of Secularism in a Secular Age
March 15, 2010
Varieties of Secularism in a Secular Age addresses what it means to say we live in a secular age. The publication is in response to Charles Taylor’s A Secular Age, which claims that secularism is the defining feature of the modern world, not a mere lack of religion, and casts light on the experience of transcendence that scientific explanations of the world tend to neglect. In Varieties of Secularism in a Secular Age, scholars from varied disciplinary backgrounds address a wider range of questions surrounding secularism and secularity, exploring the nuances of what both terms mean within different contexts. The volume was edited by Michael Warner, Jonathan VanAntwerpen, and Craig Calhoun.
