In the last decades of 20th century some scholars (Habermas, Caputo, Taylor) had acknowledged that in spite of widespread belief according to which the secularization is inescapable effect of modernization, religion in contemporary Western culture is influential again. It seems however that the restitution of religion’s cultural relevance doesn’t mean the simple return to the pre-secular state. The situation can be signified (paraphrasing the title of J.-F. Lyotard’s study “Postmodern Condition”) as “Post-secular Condition”. This panel proposes to discuss an interconnection between the post-secularity, postmodernism and post-metaphysics. The topic of discussion may include (but are not limited to): the linking of manifestations of post-secularity in different areas of culture with the post-metaphysical ontology, a modification of the relationship between Sacred and Secular, the motivations of rehabilitation of myth, ethical and esthetical implications of post-secularity.
