That in practice was the implication of my approach, though for a magisterial account of the On secularization book processes embedded in the grander theories of secularization, and their attendant metanarratives, one has to turn to José Casanova’s Public Religions in the Modern World ().3 In particular that work cast doubt on the privatization of religion under modern conditions, and gave concrete Author: David Martin.

This book is a reflection on the state of religion in the modern world – although it is published as a reflection on secularization. In this regard, it illustrates once more that the theme of secularization has put religion on the agenda of sociological research again.

This book offers a mature assessment of themes preoccupying David Martin over some fifty years, complementing his book On Secularization. Deploying secularisation as an omnibus word bringing many dimensions into play, Martin argues that the boundaries of the concept of secularisation must not be redefined simply to cover aberrant cases.

In Charles Taylor delivered a set of Gifford lectures in Edinburgh, in which he tried to come to grips with the question: “What does it mean to call our age secular?” These lectures, on the basis of which he recently published a book,1 are part of a larger research project of Taylor concerning the theme of secularization.

His new book. The decline in power, popularity and prestige of religion across the modern world is not a short-term or localized trend nor is it an accident. It is a consequence of subtle but powerful features of modernization. Renowned sociologist, Steve Bruce, elaborates the secularization paradigm and defends it against a wide variety of recent attempts at rebuttal and refutation.

The Secularization Debate is a collection of essays by prominent American and European scholars that forcefully delineates the critical issues pivotal to the hotly contested concept of secularization and its continued relevance in the postmodern era.

A Secular Age is a book written by the philosopher Charles Taylor which was published in by Harvard University Press on the basis of Taylor's earlier Gifford Lectures (Edinburgh –). The noted sociologist Robert Bellah has referred to A Secular Age as "one of the most important books to be written in my lifetime."Author: Charles Taylor.

Secularization is a cultural transition in which religious values are gradually replaced with nonreligious values. In the process, religious figureheads such as church Author: Ashley Crossman.

Rather, such narratives often seek to celebrate secularization, promote some version of it, lament it, or otherwise oppose it in favour of a programme of desecularization or resacralization.

The aim of this book is to identify some of the major genres of the history of secularization and to explore their historical contexts, normative commitments, and tendential purposes. 'Steve Bruce's book has all the hallmarks of his work: clarity, verve, graphic illustration and common sense.

The argument is Bruce's cumulative statement of the secularization theme, bringing the various elements together in an impressive synthesis, as well as building in counter-arguments, such as those to do with the role of religion in ethnic solidarity.

The classic figures of sociology drew on the assumptions of secularization theory to work out the defining features of modern societies and the conditions necessary for the emergence of the modern.
