The University of California at Riverside will host a two day conference entitled Saving the Sacred in a Secular Age on February 26-27. Participants include Charles Taylor, Hubert Dreyfus, and Sean Kelly.

An important theme will be to consider how we can recover and secure practices that are responsive to an experience of the sacred in the world. We will be exploring questions like: What are the stages by which our culture became monotheistic and then secular?
