Secular Spirituality challenges the traditional dichotomy between Enlightenment reason and religion. It follows French romantic socialists' and spiritists' search for a new spirituality based on reincarnation as a path to progress for individuals and society.

Romantic reincarnation and social reform -- 1850-1880 : building a movement -- Politics of the s??ance : progress, gender, equality -- Struggles for legitimacy : science and religion -- Spiritism, occultism, science : Meanings of reincarnation in the fin de si??cle.
