Religi Se Argumente Im S Kularen Verfassungsstaat Eine Demokratietheoretische Diskussion from the Author: Daniel Jesche. Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Theorie und Ideengeschichte, Note: 1,3, Universitat Bremen, 32 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Religion ist als Gegenstand offentlicher Diskussion wieder auf der Agenda angekommen. Dies ist nicht erst seit dem 11. September 2001 der Fall. Von der religiosen Rechten in den USA uber das Mullahregime im Iran und dem vermeintlichen Zusammenprall der Kulturen bis zur Debatte um das Tragen eines Kopftuchs in der Schule. Religion wird zusehends unter dem Gesichtspunkt ihrer Vereinbarkeit mit den sie umgebenden Rahmenbedingungen betrachtet. Demgegenuber herrschte in der akademischen Diskussion zur Rolle der Religion lange Zeit Stille(vgl. Haus 2003: 45). Dies mag am gangigen Perzeptionsmuster in den Sozialwissenschaften liegen, welches seit seinen Anfangen einen wahrlich paradigmatischen Status erlangt hat. Die Rede ist von der Sakularisierungsthese. Lange Zeit galt die Sachlage in Bezug auf die Religion als geklart, doch mehr und mehr setzt sich das Bewusstsein durch, dass die Austarierung von Religion und Politik in Form der liberalen Trennungsthese in den westlichen Demokratien einer Neuverortung bedarf. Um diese Neubewertung soll es hier gehen. Dabei stehen sich John Rawls mit seiner Konzeption eines Offentlichen Vernunftgebrauchs" und Jurgen Habermas, der fur eine Neukonzeption des Staatsburgerethos und eine Neuverteilung der Lasten des Pluralismus eintritt, gegenuber. Bevor diese Diskussion zum Hauptgegenstand werden kann, bedarf es zu allererst einer begrifflichen Auseinandersetzung mit der Religion. Das fur das Verhaltnis von Religion und Politik allgemein zugrunde liegende Beziehungsgeflecht soll im darauf folgenden zweiten Teil erarbeitet werden. Hierzu gehort einerseits die Schilderung der Bedeutung der Entstehung des modernen, sakularen Staates, die auch einen ersten Begriff von Sakularisierung mit sich bringt. Andererseits kommt es hier auf die gesellschaftliche K

The Clash Of Civilizations And The Remaking Of World Order from the Author: Samuel P. Huntington. The classic study of post-Cold War international relations, more relevant than ever in the post-9/11 world, with a new foreword by Zbigniew Brzezinski. Since its initial publication, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order has become a classic work of international relations and one of the most influential books ever written about foreign affairs. An insightful and powerful analysis of the forces driving global politics, it is as indispensable to our understanding of American foreign policy today as the day it was published. As former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski says in his new foreword to the book, it “has earned a place on the shelf of only about a dozen or so truly enduring works that provide the quintessential insights necessary for a broad understanding of world affairs in our time.” Samuel Huntington explains how clashes between civilizations are the greatest threat to world peace but also how an international order based on civilizations is the best safeguard against war. Events since the publication of the book have proved the wisdom of that analysis. The 9/11 attacks and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have demonstrated the threat of civilizations but have also shown how vital international cross-civilization cooperation is to restoring peace. As ideological distinctions among nations have been replaced by cultural differences, world politics has been reconfigured. Across the globe, new conflicts—and new cooperation—have replaced the old order of the Cold War era. The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order explains how the population explosion in Muslim countries and the economic rise of East Asia are changing global politics. These developments challenge Western dominance, promote opposition to supposedly “universal” Western ideals, and intensify intercivilization conflict over such issues as nuclear proliferation, immigration, human rights, and democracy. The Muslim population surge has led to many small wars throughout Eurasia, and the rise of China could lead to a global war of civilizations. Huntington offers a strategy for the West to preserve its unique culture and emphasizes the need for people everywhere to learn to coexist in a complex, multipolar, muliticivilizational world.

The Desecularization Of The World from the Author: Peter L. Berger. Theorists of "secularization" have for two centuries been saying that religion must inevitably decline in the modern world. But today, much of the world is as religious as ever. This volume challenges the belief that the modern world is increasingly secular, showing instead that modernization more often strengthens religion. Seven leading cultural observers examine several regions and several religions and explain the resurgence of religion in world politics. Peter L. Berger opens with a global overview. The other six writers deal with particular aspects of the religious scene: George Weigel, with Roman Catholicism;David Martin, with the evangelical Protestant upsurge not only in the Western world but also in Latin America, Africa, the Pacific rim, China, and Eastern Europe; Jonathan Sacks, with Jews and politics in the modern world; Abdullahi A. An-Na'im, with political Islam in national politics and international relations; Grace Davie, with Europe as perhaps the exception to the desecularization thesis; and Tu Weiming, with religion in the People's Republic of China.

Religion In Secular Society from the Author: Bryan R. Wilson. Fifty years after its publication, Bryan Wilson's Religion in Secular Society (1966) remains a seminal work. It is one of the clearest articulations of the secularization thesis: the claim that modernizations brings with it fundamental changes in the nature and status of religion. For Wilson, secularization refers to the fact that religion has lost influence at the societal, the institutional, and the individual level. Individual secularization is about the loss of authority of the Churches to define what people should believe, practise and accept as moral principles guiding their lives. In other words, individual piety may still persist, however, if it develops independently of religious authorities, then it is an indication of individual secularization. Wilson stresses that the consequences of the process of societalization in modern societies and on this basis he formulated his thesis that secularization is linked to the decline of community and is a concomitant of societalization. Revised and updated, Steve Bruce builds on Wilson's work by noting the changes in religious culture of the UK and US, in an appendix on major changes since the 1960s. Bruce also provides a critical response to the core ideas of Religion in Secular Society.
