<p>In this article, we explore the point on which Charles Taylor's two independent arguments converge. The historical account of religion in <i>A Secular Age</i> on the one hand and the philosophical criticism of modern epistemology in <i>Retrieving Realism</i> on the other have in common the insight that the body is essential for us. In <i>A Secular Age</i>, Taylor shows how the work of Reform and its consequent effect of disenchantment have sidelined the bodily, sensual aspects of earlier religious life. He insists on the need to undo this "disenchanting reduction" and rehabilitate the body in religion today. Parallel to this is the deconstruction of the modern epistemology which presupposes the inner-outer distinction, that is, the clear boundary between mind and body, as well as mind and world. <i>Retrieving Realism</i> makes clear that our belief formations are always already conditioned by our bodily, preconceptual engagement with our ordinary surroundings. The inner-outer dualism of modern epistemology needs to be overcome because it leaves no place for this preconceptual level of our perception, or even our embodied existence in general. We can obviously see Taylor's consistency here. Retrieving the sense of embodiment is a central concern for him both as a historian of religion and as an analytic philosopher.</p>
