Books By Author Gordon Lynch

Sacred in the Modern World by Gordon Lynch Sacred in the Modern World, Paperback (February 2014)

Re-interpreting Durkheim's theory of the sacred, this book sets out a theory of the sacred for use across a range of humanities and social science disciplines and draws on contemporary case study material to show how sacred forms-whether in 'religious' or 'secular' guise-continue to shape social life in the modern world.

On the Sacred by Gordon Lynch On the Sacred, Paperback (September 2012)

Challenging the myth of the idealized rational society, Lynch argues that emotionally-charged forms of the sacred remain an inevitable foundation of social life. Modernity has not rid us of the sacred, but merely presented us with new sacred forms focused around humanity, nature and the nation.
