The Post-Secular in Question: Religion in Contemporary Society

Philip Gorski, David Kyuman Kim, John Torpey, and Jonathan VanAntwerpen


This book considers whether there has been a religious resurgence of global dimensions in recent decades. It represents an interdisciplinary intervention in the continuing and ever-transforming discussion of the post-secular and the role of religion and secularism in today's world. Foregrounding the most urgent and compelling questions raised by the place of religion in the social sciences, past and present, the book restores religion to a more central place in social scientific thinking about the world, helping to move scholarship “beyond unbelief.”

Keywords: religion, religious resurgence, secularism, social sciences, post-secular
