Il postsecular turn: politica, religione e società oltre la secolarizzazione?

Ilaria Biano


The debate over the concept of ‘postsecular’ has grown in the last decades gathering both supporters and critics. Originated from the formulation made by Jürgen Habermas, the ‘postsecular turn’ became one of the most successful concepts in the long history of the theory of secularization.
