SOC 3860 - Religion & Secularization

Are we witnessing today the crisis of secularisms? If so, what are its causes—challenges of revived religions or secularism’s unfulfilled promises? Are the clashes between religions and secularisms inevitable? To address these questions, we’ll discuss the ideas of the prophets of religious decline (Marx, Durkheim, Weber), and consider the problems and the potential of the religious-secular encounters in a global perspective.
