Charles Taylor and Jocelyn Maclure elucidate the "constitutive principles" of secularism in this brief, well-structured, carefully argued work of philosophical analysis...Taylor and Maclure have written a sophisticated conceptual analysis. Not everyone will agree with all of their pronouncements, but their work certainly enhances one's understanding of the meaning and nature of secularism. -- Graeme Voyer Winnipeg Free Press 20111224 Taylor and Maclure have collaborated to present a clear, compelling and common-sense analysis of the vexed issue of church and state in contemporary politics. They commend a "liberal-pluralist" approach to cultural difference. -- Dennis O'Brien America 20120326
