Artykuł prezentuje przegląd wybranych kategorii pragmatyki kulturowej, niezbędnych do zrekonstruowania ujęcia przez Jeffreya Alexandra procesu sekularyzacji. Szczególna uwaga została poświęcona binarnym kodom sacrum–profanum, quasi-rytualnym performansom, ikoniczności, moralnemu dyskursowi społeczeństwa obywatelskiego oraz analizie społecznej konstrukcji zła jako ciemnej strony nowoczesności.

The article presents an overview of chosen concepts of cultural pragmatics, central for reconstructing Jeffrey Alexander’s understanding of the secularisation process. Special attention is paid to the binary cultural codes of sacred-profane, ritual-like performance, iconicity, the moral discourse of civil society, as well as the analysis of socially constructed evil as a dark side of modernity.
