The Web of Religion and Science: Bellah, Habermas and Giddens


Scholars from various fields of study have long dealt with the relationship between religion and science. This subject has found a particular expression in sociology. Sociologists and other scholars agree that even though religion and science can be seen as separate from each other, there are several commonalities between the two. The common ground between Bellah, Giddens, and Habermas – the meaningful position the Subject has/should have in constructing the social reality – brings to light a transition in the sociological theoretical arena, if we take into account the different theoretical roots of each scholar – Functionalism (Bellah), Positivism (Giddens), and Neo-Kantian (Habermas).

Scholars from various fields of study have long dealt with the relationship between religion and science. This subject has found a particular expression in sociology. Sociologists and other scholars agree that even though religion and science can be seen as separate from each other, there are several commonalities between the two. However, beyond the basic recognition of this congruence, no attention has been given to the following questions:

1. Where can we identify the common ground between religion and science?

2. What is the meaning of the common ground in a context informed by sociological theory? By comparing Bellah’s theory of modern religion and the social scientific thought of Anthony Giddens and Jurgen Habermas, Hanan Reiner provides some answers to the proposed questions.
