Recensioner i media
This original and provocative book is an invitation to go beyond political niceties and engage issues of religious difference with candor. Both scholarly and engaging, the book uplifts the level of public debate on the entanglement of religious and secular reasoning in the making of modern publics. -- -Veena Das * Johns Hopkins University * This conversation among Asad, Brown, Butler, and Mahmood offers an important snapshot of the rich debates on post-secularism and critiques of secularism. These essays provide succinct and accessible discussions of key issues in these debates. -- -Annika Thiem * Villanova University * I can't imagine a set of more rigorous, humane and insightful interlocutors on this vital aspect of the public sphere. -- -Jonathan Boyarin * University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill *
