Religion and Modern Culture: Rediscovering Enlightenment Thinking in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Description

The intention is follow up on Habermas’ and other thinkers’ idea that religion has a cognitive potential, and that modernity is, in many more ways than it acknowledges, indebted to religion. The research question is to identify the various functions of religion in modernity in different discourses: thinking, literature, politics, media, etc. In this way, the idea is to circumscribe at least some of the ways in which religion works in the modern paradigm.
