"This book gives an overview of the evolution of secularist ideas and the tug of war between the religious and political realm in western thinking. The debate concerning the role of religion in society is as fierce as ever, and, therefore, the ideas and debates presented here clearly feed into contemporary debates and thinking on religion, politics and modernity." - Journal of Peace Research"In a probing analysis of twelve giants of Western thought, Emmet Kennedy traces the emergence of secularism in the Eurocentric world." - The European Legacy
