The New Demons. Chapter 2: The Post-Christian Era and Secularization

Secularization which is an expression of atheistic humanism is presented as a formulation of moral values in the domain of the profane: justice, solidarity, equality, dignity of the person, and on the global scale the project of a new earth, a humanity of the future. “The awareness of man’s powers doubles for an awareness of his rights, duties and responsibilities.” This attitude is treated as good, as much for scientific research as for the formulation of values. That is how science can advance (and has in fact advanced). That is how man can become fully himself.

By Jacques Ellul
