Talking further on communication between religion and secularism Hebermas says that it is not a question of unstable compromise between irreconcilable elements. We should not try to dodge the alternative between an anthropocentric orientation and a view from afar of theocentric or cosmocentric thinking. However it makes a difference if we speak with one another or merely about one another. If we want to avoid the latter, two presumptions must be fulfilled: the religious side must accept the authority of “natural” reason as the fallible results of institutionalised sciences and the basic principles of universalistic egalitarianism in law and morality. Conversely, secular reason may not set itself up as the judge concerning truths of faith, even though in the end it can accept as reasonable only what it can translate into its own, in principle universally accessible, discourses. The one presupposition is no more trivial from theological perspective than the other is from that of philosophy.
