GIUMBELLI, Emerson. A noção de crença e suas implicações para a modernidade: um diálogo imaginado entre Bruno Latour e Talal Asad. Horiz. antropol. [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.35, pp. 327-356. ISSN 0104-7183. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-71832011000100011.
The article aims to reflect on the implications of the presence of the category of belief in modernity. Formed in a critical project, which led to its ontological weakening, the notion of belief was fundamental to the modern definition of religion. On the other hand, modernity did not fail to positively incorporate the same notion, which is evident in its stated commitment to the principle of "freedom of belief". The text establishes connections between the senses of the modern definition of belief and the modern construction of the notion of society. In this exploration, themes as freedom and subjection and situations are considered, as well situations as the status of credulity and blasphemy. Its course and its outcome are set in dialogue with the work of two authors, Bruno Latour and Talal Asad.
