Religious Belonging in an "Age of Authenticity": A Conversation with Charles Taylor (Part Two of Three)

In the second of a three-part interview, Charles Taylor discusses his understanding of “authenticity” as something that deeply influences contemporary Western life, including how religious life is best lived in such an “age of authenticity.” In suggesting ways in which the representatives of religious traditions should respond to people in this age, Taylor echoes the themes of such twentieth-century educational theorists as Paulo Freire and John Dewey.
