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. ?Contributors include: Aleksandra Basa,
