This little book is a philosophical novella whose greatest virtue is that it may actually be read by both religious thinkers and academic philosophers--two audiences of slight interaction--and perhaps even ignite a sustained dialogue between them. (Philip S. Gorski, Yale University)
Charles Taylor and Jocelyn Maclure elucidate the "constitutive principles" of secularism in this brief, well-structured, carefully argued work of philosophical analysis...Taylor and Maclure have written a sophisticated conceptual analysis. Not everyone will agree with all of their pronouncements, but their work certainly enhances one's understanding of the meaning and nature of secularism. (Graeme Voyer Winnipeg Free Press 2011-12-24)
Taylor and Maclure have collaborated to present a clear, compelling and common-sense analysis of the vexed issue of church and state in contemporary politics. They commend a "liberal-pluralist" approach to cultural difference. (Dennis O'Brien America 2012-03-26)
