Religious Pluralism and the Nigerian State

Full Product Description

In the case of Nigeria, scholarship on religious politics has not adequately taken into account the pluralistic context and the idealistic pretensions of the state that inhibit the possibility of forging an enduring civic amity among Nigeria's diverse groups. Ilesanmi proposes a new philosophy or model of religio-political interaction, which he calls dialogic politics. Dialogic politics celebrates pluralism and suggests that religious institutions he construed as mediating structures functioning as buffers between individual citizens in search of existential meaning and cultural identity and the impersonal state, which tends to gravitate toward instrumental objectives. Ilesanmi's study offers a fresh perspective on the complex relations between political attitudes and religious convictions.

Religious Pluralism and the Nigerian State by Simeon Olusegun Ilesanmi was published by Ohio University Press in November 1996. The ISBN for Religious Pluralism and the Nigerian State is 9780896801943.
