Can Society Survive Secularism?

Can constitutional democracies generate the motivational resources that nourish them and make them durable? The Immanent Frame on the new writings of Jürgen Habermas.

“Habermas’s recent work on religion is primarily concerned with rescuing for the modern liberal state those motivational and moral resources that it cannot generate or provide itself. At the same time, his recent work is concerned with foregrounding the kind of ethical and moral concerns, preoccupations, and values that can guide us between the Scylla of a society administered from above by the system imperatives of a global economy and political power and the Charybdis of a technological frenzy that places us on the slippery slope of a liberally sanctioned eugenics.”
