Charles Taylor: The Future of the Secular

Great lecture by philosopher Charles Taylor on how we understand the secular. He is a practicing Roman-Catholic, so that faith certainly informs his view of the secular vs. the sacred. Still, quite the interesting thinker.
Charles Taylor, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, McGill University treats the term "secular" with several different meanings which, for a variety of reasons can't be simply ironed out and reduced to one, hence the inevitability of confusions and cross-purposes.
