In 2007 I purchased Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor's massive, definitive A Secular Age. Since then, I have returned to Taylor-studies. His work is simply that important to understand our culture.
Tonight, late Sunday, I listened to this podcast, "How Charles Taylor Helps Us Understand Our Secular Age." It's excellent!
For more Taylor Reading, see...
The Ethics of Authenticity (After reading this you can forget most of what you think 'authenticity' means.)
The Language Animal: The Full Shape of the Human Linguistic Capacity (Esp. interesting to me since my doctoral dissertation was on metaphor theory.)
