Gregg Lambert examines two facets of the return to religion in the 21st century: the resurgence of overtly religious themes in contemporary philosophy and the global 'post-secular' turn since 9/11. He reflects on statements from philosophers including Alain Badiou, John D. Caputo, Jacques Derrida and Jean-Luc Nancy.
