Audi e Habermas. Religion and the Public Sphere - R. Audi and J. Habermas share, despite their mutual differences, the goal of rethinking the relationship between public discourse and religious inspirations in a new way, with the aim of overcoming the inadequacy of traditional liberal schemes. Both focus on the issue at stake from the point of view of a possible ethics of citizenship and find a key point in the epistemological position of religious discourse inside the public sphere. Audi’s proposal effectively offers normative boundaries to a public ethics of political arguments of religious nature, within a liberal but fairly inclusive perspective. Habermas’ reflection looks more persuasive at the level of premises, as it radically questions the epistemological issue behind public discourse in liberal democracies.
