The Secular: Three Possibilities

All Current Features

In his essay, “Ghosts in the Secular Age,” Ross Douthat proposes three variations for the future of secularism: 1) one worldview among many; 2) a buffered, perceptually closed mindset; 3) the privatization of the spiritual.  The article can be used in courses in modern history, philosophy, sociology, church and society, world religions, psychology, and systematic or historical theology.  See also Damon Linker’s response in The Week, “Do Secular Americans Secretly Pine for Religion?”
