Ethics and the Secular
Last evening members of the Consortium Ethics Group met at Wesley to discuss Charles Taylor’s monumental volume A Secular Age. John Corbett of the Pontifical Faculty gave a 15 minute reflection as a discussion starter. This led to an hour of reflection on this lengthy, profound, repetitive, informed and difficult volume. If offers a superb, and occasionally digressive, view of the roots of our contemporary dichotomy–immanence with or without transcendence–and a host of other questions.
Will this work be one that will be read in decades to come?
There is some sentiment that it will–perhaps in a more concise form.
