Currently reading A Secular Age, By Charles Taylor, as I thought I should. Also checked Robert Bellah's Religion in Human Evolution from the libary [sic]. Both are monstrosities. Just started Taylor's book and I have to say, I'm not too impressed with his style as a writer. We'll see where it goes though.

In exploring Hegel's dialectic I was reading recently the SEP entry on him. Seems there were 3 main interpretations of his work: traditional metaphysical, post-Kantian nonmetaphysical, revised metaphysical. According to the entry Taylor is in the first class, using as evidence his book Hegel, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1975. I was interested in how Kennilingam uses Hegel's transcend-and-include logic but found much in common with the two in Hegel's more general metaphysical view. Not surprisingly, Taylor was an extensive source in SES* and has written favorable reviews of his work generally. Would you relate some of Taylor's view in ASA to kennilingus?

E.g., pp. 34, 38, 129, 137, 149, 369, 383, 488, 585, 644, 685, 778

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
