GRUNER, Eduardo. The fall of the Gods, or modernity without illusions.Translated byMarta Ines Merajver. Sociedad (B. Aires) [online]. 2006, vol.1Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0327-7712.
In this paper, the author explores the survival of religion in the world after the modern historical process known as "disillusionment with the world". In that context, the paper poses questions about the present relations between religion and the social sciences, bearing in mind religions ideological plasticity. An interest in various sociological traditions that have dealt with religious issues reveals that a purely rational approach to the problem is bound to frustrate hermeneutic power. Perhaps what is being called into question is mans "presence" in the world.
