Example text

It seems inescapable that the dominant secularization theories have not considered the dynamic relation between religions themselves and that religions can take on new and different forms, which can be difficult to capture with a traditional institutionally oriented concept of religion. The main thrust of the conceptual analysis has been that the basic sociological concepts have (1) neglected the state agency and the external relations of the state and (2) conceptualized a society as a self-contained entity with only one religion.

Blended with other more impersonal types of bond, they underlie the extended ‘I-and-We’ consciousness, which hitherto has always seemed indispensable in binding together not only small tribes but large social units like nation-states encompassing many millions of people. People’s attachment to such large social units is often as intense as their attachment to a person they love. The individual who has formed such a bond will be as deeply affected when the social unit to which he devoted is conquered or destroyed, debased or humiliated, as when a beloved person dies.

It has seemed, in short, that we have to choose between reductionism, on the one hand, or a supermind floating over individual minds, on the other. I want to claim on the contrary, that the argument contains a fallacy and that the dilemma is a false one. It is indeed the case that all my mental life is inside my brain, and all your mental life is inside your brain … But it does not follow from that that all my mental life must be expressed in the form of a singular noun phrase referring to me. The form that my collective intentionality can take is simply ‘we intend’, ‘we are doing so-and-so,’ and the like.
