Can we divorce theology from politics?

21 Apr 2014
Description

How free from a religious or sacred dimension is our political system? The West has prided itself for years on having shaped strong, secular and democratic institutions of government, devoid of a sacred element, but Philosopher Simon Critchley argues that political or civil theology is essential to the democratic process. He and Phillip engage in a wide ranging discussion, looking at the history of this concept, and how the politics of the West is becoming re-theologised.
