    Abstract:
    My intention in this brief monograph is to stimulate a re-assessment of laïcité by philosophers and theologians, particularly within the Anglophone academic world. Often the term is understood by Anglophones not quite as accurately as its French advocates intend. The translated texts are copied from the official French Government website, as indicated, and they are supportive of my philosophical perspective. I understand laïcité as a positive concept, that when properly understood, is not an adversary of religious belief. Laïcité is an evolving concept, not a static one, and it is philosophically contingent upon a societal consciousness of the place of religion in the world.
