Religion/Huntington: According to Huntington, the assumption of Western elites that the social and technological progressiveness of modernity will gradually supplant religiousness as a cultural characteristic proves to be misjudged in view of the "renaissance of religion". (1) Rather, numerous non-Western cultures reject secular and laical ideas of order to give more room to religious sources of identity. Instead of bringing about the downfall of religions, modernist ideas of rationality and reason had contributed to an emptying of meaning, which had been refilled by religion. Indigenization and religious renaissance strengthened the self-confidence of non-Western cultures. This is expressed in the challenging ambitions of Asian and Islamic cultures.
