Towards the Post-secular Historical Consciousness

  1. Tomasz Wiśniewski

Abstract

This paper is an attempt to present an idea of post-secular historical consciousness. I start from brief observations about the contemporary post-secular condition and emphasize the presence of some non-secular factors in historical consciousness (such as the meaning of the theological tradition). I reveal some elements present in contemporary historiography (especially in the writings of Hayden White), which — I believe — are based on ideas derived from religious (spiritual, theological) imagination, but which also appear useful for eventual conceptualizing of the post-secular historical consciousness. I discuss also political dimensions of the problem, its symptoms and stakes (from 9/11 terrorist attacks to Michel Houellebecq’s novel Submission).
