Both sides assume that the sacred and the secular are diametrically opposed. Gabriel Vahanian rightly calls such misbegotten assumptions into question. The problem lies elsewhere. In the light of the biblical dialectic of holiness and the secular, Praise of the Secular deftly vindicates the secular, weaving together philosophy, history, and theology in fine Derridean, yet reinforced, deconstructionist fashion.
