description Based on an international research cluster of country specialists interested in the nexus between politics and religion in countries of Asia, Africa and the Middle East, we have edited, together with Shylashri Shankar, a volume that compares the place of religion and the secular in countries outside the West.1 All contributors took as their starting point Charles Taylor’s “A Secular Age” (2007), in which the author argues that the widespread availability of an option of not believing first evolved in the North Atlantic world. He examines the processes by which this option emerged, mostly by focusing his inquiry 2 on developments in philosophy and religion (specifically, Western Christianity), while social, economic, and political developments for a large part remain back stage. In the following, we summarize some of the lessons our contributors have drawn from their case studies, sometimes paralleling, often contrasting those developments Taylor found to be key in the emergence of a secular age in the West. We close with a sociological framework through which contestations around religion and state can be systematically schematized and compared.

Partiendo de un estudio internacional de especialistas que se ocupan de la relación entre política y religión en los países de Asia, África y Oriente Medio, junto con Shylas¬hri Shankar los autores han editado un libro que confronta el papel de la religión y de la secularización en los países no occidentales. Todos los ensayos presentes en la obra toman como punto de partida A Secular Age de Charles Taylor, donde el autor sostiene que la difundida costumbre de no creer se ha afirmado antes que todo en el mundo norteatlántico. Él examina los procesos por medio de los cuales ha emergido esta opción, deteniéndose sobre todo en los desarrollos de la filosofía y de la religión (en particular, la cristiandad occidental), mientras que las evoluciones sociales, económicas y políticas pasan en silencio en su mayoría. Este artículo resume algunos de los resultados que los varios autores han sacado de sus case-studies, a veces similares, otras veces opuestos respecto de las elaboraciones que Taylor ha considerado necesarias para el nacimiento de una edad secular en Occidente. Los autores concluyen con un cuadro sociológico mediante el cual las controversias que atañen a la religión y al Estado pueden ser esque¬matizadas y confrontadas de manera sistemática. 2019-05-22T21:59:15Z 2019-05-22T21:59:15Z 2014-07 Artículo de revista http://purl.org/coar/resource_type/c_6501 Text info:eu-repo/semantics/article http://purl.org/redcol/resource_type/ART info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion Künkler, M., & Madeley, J.
