This collection of fresh and lively essays analyzes the Habermasian
post-secular turn as it has been evolving over the last decade triggering
intensive debates in social and political theory, but at the same time
aims to situate the arising postsecular discourse(s) within the larger
intellectual environment shaped by the complex influence of the alleged
„return“ of religion or the religious. The volume includes studies from
as diverse fields as cultural theory, social theory, political philosophy,
and theory of religion, as well as theology and bioethics. Key issues such
as tolerance, the nature and challenges of modernity, pluralism, knowledge
and faith, human dignity, ritual, idolatry or transcendence are brought
into the discussion in an inventive way, and Habermas’s work is reflected
upon in comparison with figures like Levinas, Vattimo, and Agnes Heller.
