Democracy and religious diversity

Lecture by Charles Taylor

Western societies have undergone an expanding process of religious and spiritual pluralism, due in good part to the development of individual freedom and also as a result of migrations. All of this means that the role and significance of secular states in the west have radically changed: more and more states need to try to find norms to manage a society in which spirituality, religious or otherwise, is very diverse. Some western countries have been slow to take account of this change, an oversight which has had negative and dangerous consequences.
