Abstract
This article explores the differences between Marcel Gauchet and Charles Taylor with respect to their theories of secularization. It starts by looking at their resemblances; it continues by distinguishing a two-fold difference in their approach. The variation within their similar methodologies is examined, and then the consequences of these divergent definitions of religion are investigated. We focus on four themes: the role of the Axial religions, the significance of Incarnation and Reformation, the significance of Christianity as the religion of the departure from religion, and the possibility of religious conversion. Taylors and Gauchets views on the future of religion diverge as a function of their different interpretations of fulfilment and hunger for meaning.
