The Knowles-Woodsworth Centre for Theology and Public Policy (knowles-woodsworth.org) is pleased to bring renowned author and philosopher Charles Taylor to Winnipeg. Taylor will be speaking on Solidarity and Diversity in a Secular Age. The event is open to the general public at no charge. “The change I want to define and trace is one which takes us from a society in which it was virtually impossible not to believe in God, to one in which faith, even for the staunchest believer, is one human possibility among others.” (Charles Taylor, A Secular Age) Charles Taylor is Professor Emeritus of Political Science and Philosophy at McGill University. Taylor was the co-chair of the Taylor-Bouchard Commission on Reasonable Accommodation in Quebec. His books include A Secular Age, which highly respected sociologist of religion Robert Bellah called “one of the most important books to be written in my lifetime”.
