Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to chart the conceptual territory on which the current discussion around political secularism takes place. In what follows, I seek to achieve two goals: (1) uncover three ways (idealizing, reconstructive or dialectial) in which normative theories of secularism may relate to real world contexts; and (2) distinguish three meta-narratives (coercive, segregationist or accommodative) that structure debates in contemporary societies.
