The term postsecularism refers to a theoretical construct based on a critical analysis of the contemporary position of religion in the social, political, and cultural context. Firstly, this article is an introduction to the general issue of the relevance of the concept postsecularism for the reflection on society and reality. Secondly, it presents and discusses models of the interaction of religious and secular notions of rationality proposed by the philosophers Jürgen Habermas, John Milibank and Nicholas Wolterstorff. Postsecular thinkers try to describe the relationship between religion and modernity, but their approach is also normative, since they offer guidelines for achieving the goal of a peaceful and just society. Habermas believes that the next step to achieve this goal is a critical, yet dialogical acceptance of religion as a participant in the communicative interaction, with the continuation of the secularization. From the Christian perspective, Milbank’s radical orthodoxy and Wolterstorff’s reformed epistemology create space for such a development because their apologetics does not encourage isolation, but allows for the positive critical and selfcritical contribution of the religion, which Habermas’s secular vision expects.
