Philosophy - For People Who Think
Secularism: Freedom or Constraint?
What is the difference between secularism and tolerance? Is secularism the strict separation of churches and state, or the collective liberation from all hold of religion? For some, it's also a deeply problematic denial of people's identites, and can often morph into a form of Islamophobia. Raphaël Enthoven talks with Catherine Kintzler, philosopher specialising in secularism, and Valentine Zuber, historian of secularism.
