From Atla, a membership association of collectors and connectors in religion and theology, Religion and Social Change includes authors ranging from devoutly religious to staunchly secular 19th century thinkers. Notable authors include Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile Durkheim, Soren Kierkegaard, Charles Darwin, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Immanuel Kant, Ralph Waldo Emerson and many more. Enlightenment rationalism and the movements it spawned came into often tense dialogue with nearly all religious traditions during this dynamic period of change.
