Abstract

In Britain today there is no particular religion that can define our public concerns or shared identity. But ignoring the ways religion informs public life would be a mistake. The goal, writes Craig Calhoun, should be a way for the public sphere to benefit from the articulation of diverse views. After all, public life is important precisely because it allows for strangers of different perspectives and opinions to inform each other.
