Our thinking about religions and secularisms has long focused on the conflicts between them. This course will begin by looking at the idea of religious-secular divides and how it emerged in modern times. But it will also ask: should we, and can we, move beyond the view that conflict is the only possible interfacing between the religious and the secular? Can we think of the religious-secular encounters in terms of collaborations? And, if so, what are the sources, religious and secular, that enable us to envision the world where believers and non-believers can affirm their differences and work toward the flourishing of all?
