Definition and meaning of SecularismSecularism - [World History]The view that the present well-being of mankind should predominate over religious considerations in civil or public affairs is termed secularism. In common usage, the term means indifference to or rejection of religious ideas. Secularism has increased in the 20th century as more people worldwide have exercised their right to choose whether to worship in an organized religion. It has seemed to coincide with "modernization" of societies through industrialization and urbanization; traditional, conservative, and rural societies have tended to resist secularism and remain bound to their religious affiliations. It has caused some traditions to change. Until relatively recently in the United States, all stores and businesses were closed on Sunday, a day reserved for religious celebrations. Today, shopping centers and other businesses are open. Some view this as an example of secularism.
