Disenchantment of the World: A Political History of Religion
Marcel Gauchet (au); Oscar Burge (tr); Charles Taylor (fr). In this controversial work of speculative history, Gauchet reinterprets the development of the modern West in terms of mankindís changing relation to religion. He views Western history as a movement away from religious society, beginning with prophetic Judaism, gaining tremendous momentum in Christianity, & eventually leading to the rise of the political state. Gauchetís paradoxical argument is that the development of human political & psychological autonomy must be understood against the backdrop of a double movement in religious consciousness -- the growth of divine power & its increasing distance from human activity.
