Liberalism, Democracy and Religion (Ph.D. Course)

What is the relationship between religion and liberal democracy?

This course examines the meanings of and interactions between religion and politics from a liberal democratic perspective. Religious practices complicates liberal democratic theory in ways more complex than constitutional provisions (e.g.: establishment clause, freedom of conscience) are able to capture. Illiberal practices, fundamentalist views, and religious and cultural differences challenge core tenets of liberalism like freedom, equality, and public reason.

This course examines the emerging debate on the appropriate relationship between religion and politics in the light of a re-examination of Rawls’s political liberalism and post-Rawlsian liberal literature. The course investigates the implications of the various ways in which the religion-state relationship have been constructed to overcome political conflicts and the limits of this paradigm.
