IWRBS-SHS Lesson-Is religion-dying?

  1. 1. Objectives: 1. define secularization theory and other religious trends; 2. identify levels of securalization theory; and 3. discuss the role of religion in the formulation of pulic policy.
  2. 2. Religious Trends • Secularization Theory –Levels of Secularization • Sacralization • Detraditionalization • Universalization
  3. 3. • Secularization theory focuses on the “demand” for religion and predicts that religion will decline as societies develop. source: https://www.cambridge.org
  4. 4. • Secularization has many levels of meaning, both as a theory and as a historical process. Social theorists such as Karl Marx (1818–1883), Sigmund Freud (1856–1939), Max Weber (1864– 1920), and Émile Durkheim (1858–1917) postulated that the modernization of society would include a decline in levels of religiosity. source: https://www.cambridge.org
  5. 5. • Abdel Wahab Elmessiri (2002) outlined two meanings of the term secularization: – Partial Secularization: which is the common meaning of the word, and expresses "The separation between religion and state". – Complete Secularization: this definition is not limited to the partial definition, but exceeds it to "The separation between all (religion, moral, and human) values, and (not just the state) but also to (the human nature in its public and private sides), so that the holiness is removed from the world, and this world is transformed into a usable matter that can be employed for the sake of the strong".
  6. 6. • Societal Secularization - refers to how religion, in the process of modernization, has lost its influence over how social systemm is to be run.
  7. 7. • Organizational Secularization - religious transformation can take place within religious organizations, and certain processes can be described as secularization without necessarily implying decline.
  8. 8. • Individual Secularization - pertains to how individuals no longer feel obligedd to follow a set of doctrines or be subject to institutional religious practice or membership.
  9. 9. • a concept that has cropped up a few times above, turns secularization on its head by showing that religion is, in fact, experiencing, more than anything, resurgence in modern times.
  10. 10. • often rejects or neglects the metaphysical aspects of the supernatural, commonly associated with traditional religion, instead placing typical religious qualities in earthly entities. • Among systems that have been characterized as secular religions (sacralization) are capitalism, nationalism, internationalism, Nazism, fascism, feminism,communism ,etc.
  11. 11. • refers to the erosion of tradition in religion (secularization, agnosticism, religious disaffiliation) and society in postmodernism. • Subscribing individuals in traditional societies believe in established, timeless, authoritative orders and values, above the individual, and timeless attainable goals. Such beliefs may manifest as specific behavior.
  12. 12. • Factors that contribute to loss of tradition are endorsement of individual choice and responsibility or the "sacred" (in Émile Durkheim's sense of the term) individual itself in democratic societies, and the revolution in communications.
  13. 13. • It is primarily grounded in the “ethic of humanity” which is premised on the idea that “ethnic, gendered or national differences should not be allowed to disguised the fact that-essentially-we are all humans.” • In favor of that which unite us all---our humanity.
