One thought on “Charles Taylor’s ‘A Secular Age’

    I agree that Taylor’s work is of great importance. It is difficult, but it gives the reader a new framework in which to consider the extraordinary development of secularism and change in religious mindset in the modern, western world. I would suggest that undergraduate readers be given excerpts to read rather than be required to read the whole book, much as they would be given excerpts of Foucault to be read. This is a scholarly work, not something directed at a general reader. In fact this is a ‘must read’ for all scholars of religion and secularism in the western world.
