Om förutsättningarna för ett post-sekulärt samtal ...

If the social scientist understands "religion" as an  irrational response to fear, and if the religionist understands "social science" as premised on an arbitrary set of presuppositions, then little dialogue is possible. By contrast, if the social scientist understands religion as a rational interpretation of telos and cosmos, and the religionist understands social science as a search for the best society, then the two can walk hand in hand.
