The place of religion in contemporary pluralistic societies is a pressing and open question. This course explores tensions between the traditional 'secular state' and an emerging emphasis on particular voices of cultural minorities and religious communities. Particular attention will be given to contemporary criticism of the concept of 'secularism' as well as to the question of what place theological discourse has in the public sphere.
Sorry, we don't have that information available.
