Dietrich Jung: Die Religion in der Moderne: Kritische Betrachtungen zum Begriff der postsäkularen Gesellschaft

Abstract

Religion in Modernity: Critical Reflections About the Concept of Post-secular Society
In his speech “Faith and Knowledge” on the occasion of the awarding of the Frankfurt peace prize
of the German Publishers and Booksellers Association in 2001, Jürgen Habermas made a turn in
his understanding of contemporary modernity. In coining the concept of post-secular society, he
presented a means of rethinking the relationship between religion and modernity. In departing from
this conceptual rethinking by Habermas, the article makes a critical investigation into the broader
debate about religious revival and the advent of a post-secular society. It argues that the concept of
post-secular society might inform us of a change in hegemonic projects of modernity, but it does not
add any new analytical or descriptive value to our understanding of modernity as a structural process.
