‘A Secular Age’: Tracing the Contours of Religion and Belief
Date: Monday 8th – Thursday 11th June 2009

The cheap levitra without prescription conference will explore the way in which theology and philosophy, when placed in dialogue with the social sciences, can reinvigorate public discourse. Some of the themes which will be discussed include:

  • Assessment of Charles Taylor’s A Secular Age;
  • the relationship between religion, belief and modernity: a critical assessment;
  • the role of theology and philosophy in the public square;
  • the decline of the appeal to an objective moral order and the rise of the human rights culture;
  • moral sources and diverse contexts today.
