Project:

Philosophy of Language and the Concept of “Translation” in Secularization Theory

A theory of the “translation” of religious language is in fact a core thesis of postsecular philosophy. Is the radical contextualism a plausible theory for the translation of religious language? In my research I will develop the argument that religious language can be understood without participation in the religious form of life. I will argue against the majority of postsecular thinkers and the prevailing radical contextualism in the theory of religious language.
