Secularity, Post-Secularity, and Russian Religious Philosophy

Grigory Goutner, Doctor of Philosophy
pp. 63–82
In the paper secular and post-secular thought are compared with Russian religious philosophy. It is demonstrated that the post-secular interpretation of religion is quite opposite to the position of Russian religious philosophy. However it is also opposite to the secular rationality. This paradoxical situation becomes clear, if we notice some essential similarity between Russian religious project and rational secular project. Both projects try to be total. They oppose each other because they seek for the different totalities. Secular rationality seeks for the totality of reason. Religious philosophy tries to include reason in the religious totality. As distinct from both, post-secularity refuses from any kind of totality. Post-secular project does not presuppose to construct any integrity. The main concept of this project is complementarity. It implies the partnership of different discourses, which are complementary to each other.
Keywords: secular, post-secular, religion, integrity, totality, complementarity, discourse.
