What does it mean to say that we live in a secular age? This apparently simple question opens into the massive, provocative, and complex "A Secular Age," where Charles Taylor positions secularism as a defining feature of the modern world, not the mere absence of religion, and casts light on the experience of transcendence that scientistic explanations of the world tend to neglect.

In "Varieties of Secularism in a Secular Age," a prominent and varied group of scholars chart the conversations in which "A Secular Age" intervenes and address wider questions of secularism and secularity. The distinguished contributors include Robert Bellah, Jose Casanova, Nilufer Gole, William E. Connolly, Wendy Brown, Simon During, Colin Jager, Jon Butler, Jonathan Sheehan, Akeel Bilgrami, John Milbank, and Saba Mahmood.

"Varieties of Secularism in a Secular Age" succeeds in conveying to readers the complexity of secularism while serving as an invaluable guide to a landmark book.
