Are we all really secular?

The Institute was established to advance understanding of the role of secular values and the process of secularization in contemporary society and culture. Nonpartisan and multidisciplinary, the Institute conducts academic research, sponsors curriculum development, and presents public events. In this lecture Dr. Kosmin will outline why secularism is an appealing part of the modern world. The lecture is free and open to the public.
