The "crisis" of liberal democracies in today's world demands from us re-investigation of the notion of the "political". Since the dominant concept of the "political" that is associated with the liberal-democratic assignment of its significance is inseparable from certain determination of secularization as historical reason, with the crisis of liberal democracies and concomitantly with the exhaustion of the notion of "secularization", the problem of religion/theology has come to assume profound significance for us once more. This important collection of essays by some of the most promising scholars of our time is an attempt to rethink the question of the political anew and of its intricate relation to religion.
