‘The fate of our times is characterised by rationalisation and intellectualisation and, above all, by the “disenchantment of the world”’, declared Max Weber in 1917. These themes have occupied Akeel Bilgrami over many years, and his reflections on them have now been brought together in a collection of essays, Secularism, Identity, and Enchantment. In a change to the original programme, Bilgrami will be with us to discuss his work, alongside Max De-Gaynesfordand Joanna Hodge.
