Religion and the public sphere

from Jonathan VanAntwerpen vanantwerpen@ssrc.org to Religion & the Public Sphere at SSRC religion@ssrc.org date 19 Dec 2007 09:41 subject The Godless Delusion & The Immanent Frame
Dear colleagues:
I'm writing with an update on The Immanent Frame, the Social Science Research Council’s new blog on secularism, religion, and the public sphere: http://www.ssrc.org/blogs/immanent_frame/.
We've recently initiated a series of comments on "The Godless Delusion," a piece in The New York Times Book Review by John Patrick Diggins (http://www.ssrc.org/blogs/immanent_frame/2007/12/15/the-godless-delusion/), as well as launching a series of posts on Mark Lilla's new book, The Stillborn God (http://www.ssrc.org/blogs/immanent_frame/category/the-stillborn-god/).
In the weeks ahead, we’ll be continuing our focus on Charles Taylor's A Secular Age (http://www.ssrc.org/blogs/immanent_frame/category/secular_age/), debating Jürgen Habermas’s recent work on religion in the public sphere, expanding our discussion of Lilla’s The Stillborn God, and pursuing the question of secular criticism—with forthcoming posts from: Gil Anidjar, Talal Asad, Robert Bellah, Rajeev Bhargava, Craig Calhoun, Hent de Vries, Amy Hollywood, Janet Jakobsen, Hans Joas, Tomoko Masuzawa, Ann Pellegrini, Charles Taylor, and others.
The Immanent Frame draws on, and is closely linked to, the SSRC’s work on religion and the public sphere: http://programs.ssrc.org/religion/.
All the best,
