Authors: Emanuel L. Paparella (Barry University, Miami Shore, FL, USA) 
Book Description:
This proposed book consists of 18 essays written over four years (2014-2017) on the theme of the historical nexus between religion and politics. It takes a sweeping panoramic cultural and anthropological view on the theme that is in some way connected to the following philosophical dialectical conundrums: myth/history, poetical/scientific, political/transcendent, freedom/determinism, ideological/historical, power/justice, law/love, grand narrative/positivistic approach, hermeneutics, transcendent/immanence, secular/religious, liberal/fascist, freedom/human rights, revelation/positivism, democracy/political corruption, moral compass/power, guilt/honor, democracy/truth, ethical tradition/historical tradition, secular/religious humanism, public/private spirituality, spiritual identity/political identity. All of these subthemes are alluded to in the titles of the chapters and then philosophically explored. The chapters also venture into uncharted territory. From the very beginning, they often challenge taken-for-granted assumptions about history, progress, science, the secular and the sacred. The goal is not so much to solve those perennial philosophical conundrums, but to point to their relevancy for an effective handle on various contemporary existential predicaments in politics, in environmental science, and in spirituality. The target audience includes the educated layman of a philosophical bend, but it also includes those readers that follow contemporary trends in ethics, spirituality and politics. (Nova)
