Religion and Modernity
Is secularization an integral part of modernity? In this volume, renowned social and cultural scientists, historians and philosophers present different approaches to an analytical understanding of modernity and the role of religion in modern societies. Thereby, this book makes a contribution to current discussions about unity and plurality in modernity, its universality and contingency as well as about the compatibility of religion with modernity and the continuous tension between the two.
