What does it mean to describe our society as secular? And what role might religion play in its evolution? Are religious considerations a necessary part of coherent speech about human dignity or human rights? Are religious communities properly accounted for in our talk of a social contract? Recognizing Religion in a Secular Society sets aside popular myths about secularism to probe these important questions from the perspectives of law, politics, religion, morality, and bioethics, reconfiguring the debate about religion and public life.
