The Future of Religion

Toward a Reconciled Society


Michael R. Ott

In the midst of the increasing antagonism between religion and secularity, the sacred and the profane, faith and reason – currently described in terms of “the clash of civilizations” – is religion any longer relevant or meaningful in the globalizing development of modern subjectivity, inter-subjectivity, family, society, state and history? If so, how and to what end? In the socio-historical context of the highly secular, neo-liberal/neo-conservative globalization movement, the question of the social meaning and relevancy of religion has entered directly into the contemporary discourse on the future of humanity. This book gives expression to the research of international scholars as they wrestled with these issues during the Future of Religion courses held at the Inter-university Center in Dubrovnik, Croatia from 2001-2005.

‘Engagement’, is notorious enough. 4 Its conclusions are difficult to swallow: Brecht ends up as an apologist for Stalinist terror and the false reconciliations of ‘really-existing socialism’, and his works are pronounced politically ‘untrue’. 5 These damning judgements are more often dismissed than seriously
