Chains of persuasion (2018)

a framework for religion in democracy

in: Oxford scholarship online

Abstract

Democratic citizens around the world appeal to religious arguments, ideals, identities, and institutions in their political activism. And yet predominant theoretical accounts of liberal democracy provide precious little applicable guidance to citizens who must make judgments about religion's proper role in their politics. 'Chains of Persuasion' provides a new moral framework to guide citizens' evaluations of religious politics.
