Religion and Politics: A Perspective on their Interdependence in Contemporary Society
Keywords:religion, politics, authority, power, vision of life, values, autonomous entities, collaboration, secular and religious nationalism
The human origins of religion and politics and their development up to the present day is indeed mind boggling. Although we cannot possibly determine when exactly religion and politics began in historical terms, these two realities must have originated when humans started becoming aware of their relationship with ‘the Absolute’ and with their fellow human beings. Religion and politics have been a significant part of human life and social behaviour ever since. The resurgence of religion and politics in the institutional life of society across the globe requires a fresh discussion about that the role religion and politics play in human interaction today. This article attempts to dissect the compromises and anomalies of these two social institutions – religion and politics.
