I think Charles Taylor is an one of the most important living philosophers today. And I think his magnum opus, A Secular Age (henceforth referenced as ASA), is even more important. Lately I've been working through my dissertation, cleaning it up with final edits and trimming it down by at least 10,000 words (limit is 100,000, I had 105,000, and I need space for a conclusion). Below, you'll find a section I cut that introduces the life of Charles Taylor. Next week I'll post another cut section on his book ASA.
