Political Religions and Religious Politics

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The relationship between the religious and the political has been obscured by the categorical opposition between the public and the private and between the individual and the collective. But by assuming religions as cultural realities that respond to the collective experience of the sacred, one can understand how they generate spaces of meaning called "worlds" that serve as sustenance for different ways of constructing the polis. And to the extent that politics does not exhaust the spaces of existential significance, never being a fundamental response to fundamental existential questions, religious life emerges as a human reaction to these abysses, fulfilling a very mundane task of configuring the world that still has an important role to play in globalized societies.
