Event details
Details Renowned sociologist Peter Berger argues that secularization theory—the idea that modernity necessarily leads to a decline of religion—has been falsified. Rather than an age of secularity, ours is an age of pluralism. In other words, the problem of modernity is not that the gods have fled, but that there are too many of them around.

Berger will discuss his ideas on religion and modernity, and sketch an outline of a possible theory of pluralism for the modern era.
