Secularism or Democracy Associational Governance of Religious Diversity by Veit Bader pdf free download. This book on the governance of religious diversity is written from a methodologically areligious perspective that is characteristic of sociology and political philosophy. However, it seems appropriate to start with a personal ‘confession’: in a traditional sense, I am religio¨s unmusikalisch – to use Max Weber’s famous phrase.

I also do not feel the need to stylise my attraction or even my awe for complexity, diversity and contingency – the postmodern versions of traditional poly- or pantheism – into an ‘immanentist counter-metaphysics’. As an observer, on the one hand, I am bewildered by the unnameable atrocities that have been and are still being committed in the name of monotheisms and its secular counterparts such as National Socialism or MarxismLeninism, as well as in the name of polytheisms – suum cuique originally meant Jedem seine Hekatomben – and its secular counterparts, such as rivalling nationalisms. On the other hand, I acknowledge that much praiseworthy good has been and is still being done by committed religious and non-religious believers in symbolic universes of all kinds.

As political theorists and citizens, we clearly have to counterbalance the polytheistic praise of diversity with the monotheistic guarantees of equality, as is so nicely phrased in the slogan: all different, all equal. As people trying to live meaningful lives, we may eventually learn to resist the temptations of all integrated, coherent and all-embracing symbolic universes, whether religious or secular (the sacralisation of the world in secularist and scientistic ideologies).
