José Casanova on Habermas and secularization

At a workshop with Jürgen Habermas at New York University, October 2009, professor José Casanova presented a paper entitled "Are we still secular? Exploring the post-secular: Three Meanings of "the Secular" and their possible transcendence".

The paper is now available on the website of The Centre for the Study of Religion and Society, Uppsala University, Sweden. See here [word file].

In his paper, Casanova criticizes Habermas's view on secularization.

José Casanova is Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University, Washington DC and a Senior Fellow at the Berkeley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs. Casanova has published widely on sociological theory, migration, religion and globalization. See especially his "Public Religion in the Modern World" (University Of Chicago Press, 1994).
