Abstract

This article seeks to commend Professor Trigg on his exposure of the warped thinking and policy-making concerning religious life and its institutions in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. However, it challenges the view that the problems he has identified are best linked to deep philosophical and metaphysical positions (e. g. relativism, non-realism and the subjectivity of values). Instead it invites a more piecemeal philosophical approach and supports the call to participate in the agora of discussion and policy-making despite the secular hostility.
