One person’s dogma is another’s heresy. So it is with any discourse of religion and even more so in the discourse of secularism and religion. So, I wish to strip any normative patina which attaches to these words. I use them simply because I want to address some of the most commonly and strongly held assumptions and positions underlying this discourse. This afterword does not set out to summarise the rich contributions to this volume nor to take direct issue with any particular one. And yet, there is no idea or proposition in this afterword which is not inspired by, or does not take issue with, at least one of these contributions and in this respect it may be seen as a veritable dialogical epilogue (even if monological in form) to the collection of essays
