Dr. Charles Taylor and Dr. Roger Scruton on the Sacred and the Secular
Thinking the Sacred with Roger Scruton, McGill University, 2014
In 2014, McGill University hosted a panel discussion with philosophers Charles Taylor and Roger Scruton on the sacred and the secular in modernity. The panel discussion took part within a broader conference titled Thinking the Sacred with Roger Scruton which had examined the ways the secular has been shaped by the sacred. The central question this particular panel was concerned however was whether a secular public sphere could continue to regulate and find within itself shared ethical sources without public religious expression, and if not, how should it respond to religious identities and what kind of place should these have in secular modern society.
