An op-ed by Stanley Fish in Monday’s New York Times discusses a new publication comprising the proceedings from a course of dialogues between Habermas and four Jesuit academics in 2007. They have previously appeared in German, but they are now being published in English for the first time under the title An Awareness of What is Missing: Faith and Reason in a Post-secular Age.
It is also interesting to note that, in the first 12 hours after its posting (overnight hours in the U.S.), the op-ed had already inspired 102 comments. People clearly have strong opinions about the topic, whether or not they agree with Habermas’s insistence on the need to make more room for religion in a post-secular age.
