The Immanent Frame: Secularism, Religion and the Public Sphere

I came across a blog today that is part of the Social Science Research Council called The Immanent Frame: Secularism, religion and the public sphere. For anyone interested in the social sciences this blog looks to be promising. The blog contains post by many contributors including prominent figures such as Charles Taylor, Scott Appleby, Robert Bellah, William Connolly (who’s most recent book Capitalism and Christianity, American Style (Duke University Press, 2008 ) looks quite interesting), Dwight Hopkins, David Hollinger, Nancy Levene, Leigh Eric Schmidt, James K.A. Smith, and Mark C. Taylor. For anyone with a particular interest in the work of Charles Taylor (which I hope would be many; if not you might want to pray about that) there is quite a bit of engagement with his most recent 896 pg. tome, A Secular Age. I’ve included a link above to the blog and encourage you to check it out. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts after you get a chance to view the blog and read a few posts. There are a couple of other SSRC blogs that can be accessed through the SSRC link above. However, I haven’t had a chance to look over them much so I can’t make any direct recommendations. Enjoy!
