Post-Liberal Society

Can Religion Supply a Foundation for a Society beyond Weightless Freedom and Consanguinity?

自由之後:宗教能否為崩解的社會提供新的根基?

Today we observe that a more self-confident anti-liberalism arises against the ideal of liberal democracy. The dominance and arrogance of the North, as well as the excesses of freedom in Northern societies are used by regimes and terrorists alike as arguments for a forced implementation and maintenance of anti-liberal systems and identities. The rhetoric of these anti-liberal efforts seems always to be clad in biological and organic metaphors.

Taking his departure in the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas Dr. Rolfsen will in his lecture argue that the alternatives between liberalism and organic communitarianism – between weightless freedom and consanguinity – are not coincidental. In order to shape a third alternative to these approaches, we need to explore the concept of transcendence anew. In this way, religion again becomes relevant to the fundamental challenges that we face. And perhaps our understanding of religion also will have to change when facing these essential challenges.
