Texte du rabat

Exhuming the religious roots of our ostensibly godless age, this book reveals that modernity is much less secular than conventional wisdom suggests. It explores the ideas of such figures as Petrarch, Erasmus, Descartes, and Hobbes, showing that modernity is best understood as a series of attempts to formulate a coherent metaphysics or theology.



Résumé
Exposing the religious roots of our ostensibly godless age, this study reveals that modernity is much less secular than conventional wisdom suggests. Beginning with the collapse of the medieval world, it argues that from the very beginning, moderns sought not to eliminate religion but to support a new view of religion and its place in human life.
