The many altars of modernity

£14.99

Product description

As new condition. This book is the summation of many decades of work by Peter L. Berger, an internationally renowned sociologist of religion. Secularization theory which saw modernity as leading to a decline of religion has been empirically falsified. It should be replaced by a nuanced theory of pluralism. In this new book, Berger outlines the possible foundations for such a theory, addressing a wide range of issues spanning individual faith, inter religious societies, and the political order. He proposes a conversation around a new paradigm for religion and pluralism in an age of multiple modernities. The book also includes responses from three eminent scholars of religion:Nancy Ammerman, Detlef Pollack, and Fenggang Yang.
