Summary What is the place of religion in a pluralist democracy? The continuous presence of religion in the public sphere has raised anew normative and practical issues related to the role of religion in a democratic polity, generating spirited political debates in Western and non-Western contexts. Contemporary Political Philosophy and Religionprovides an advanced introduction to, and a critical appraisal of, the major schools of political thought with a focus on the relationship between democracy and religion.
