Religie si Putere în America - de la Alexis de Tocqueville la administratia Bush jr. -/Religion and Power in America - from Alexis de Tocqueville to Bush Jr. Administration

This text is meant to bring to the fore the connection between politics and religion, as it was reflected in theory that Alexis de Tocqueville dealt to in his book entitled „De la démocratie en Amérique”. In the same time, it takes into consideration the well-known meeting between J. Habermas and J. Ratzinger (2004, January), which was carried out at the Catholic Academy in München. Here, a debate regarding the pre-political moral foundations of the state took place. The interest in such a topic has streamed from what some people consider to be the „dogmatic-religious policy” concerning social philosophy, which the Bush Administration put into practice
Keywords Power, Habermas, Ratzinger, Alexis de Tocqueville, religious pluralism, democracy, religious minorities
