The remainders of faith

on Karl Löwith's conception of secularization

Rodolphe Gasché

pp. 339-358

The essay explores Karl Löwith's notion of secularization arguing that this notion presupposes a conception of faith found only in the religions of the Book. In addition, it is shown that his analyses of history whether eschatological or progressive are carried out against the background of the Greek experience of the physical cosmos characterized by cyclical time.
