Civil Religion in Political Thought
Ronald Weed, John von Heyking
CUA Press, Mar 1, 2010 - Political Science - 357 pages
The essays in this volume blend historical and philosophical reflection with concern for contemporary political problems. They show that the causes and motivations of civil religion are a permanent fixture of the human condition, though some of its manifestations and proximate causes have shifted in an age of multiculturalism, religious toleration, and secularization
