One of the signal features of our era is the re-emergence of the âsacredâ in all its different guises, from New Age paganism to the emerging religious sensitivity within cultural and political theory.
The wager of ÂiÂekâs The Fragile Absolute â published here with a new preface by the author â is that Christianity and Marxism can fight together against the contemporary onslought of vapid spiritualism. The revolutionary core of the Christian legacy is too precious to be left to the fundamentalists.
