Reading the essays in this collection, one is struck by the variety of ways in which different societies across the globe manage their diversity, especially the religious. Some do so confidently and with success. Some others do so diffidently, nervously, not quite sure where it would all end. While almost all of them take secularism in some form as their desired goal, they feel uneasy about some aspects of it and seek to redefine it, sometimes explicitly, sometimes by stealth. In this afterword I make a few brief remarks about the nature and limits of secularism as well as why and how it can be made more hospitable to the religious sensibility.
