‘The relationship between the “religious”, the “civil” and the “political”: methodological introductions
The levels of studying the phenomena or individual concepts completely differ from the levels of studying the phenomena of intertwined concepts. This means that the study of the relationships between theoretical concepts or real phenomena require that the analysis be deeper and more considerate of the requirements of intertwining, overlapping, intersection, compatibility and interaction.
Based on this, examination of the relationship between the “religious” and the “political” is most needed in regard with this assertion. Therefore, it requires facing four main problematics: a theoretical problematic, a realistic problematic, a problematic related to the relationship between theory and reality, and finally a problematic related to multiplicity of approaches that can intersect with the “religious” and “political”.
