Abstract: This first presentation for our Fall Table Talk Series—"For the Life of a Secular Age"—will first provide a concise history of the theories and debates about secularization. Then it will offer a critical examination of two of the most recent contributions to the debate. First, we'll explore Mary Eberstadt's emphasis on the disintegration of the family as a factor in secularization. Then we'll turn to Charles Taylor for a clarification of secularization, as presented in his magnum opus A Secular Age. We'll conclude by following Taylor and Eberstad with a reflection on the role of families and beauty for cultural renewal.
