A quantitative and theoretic analysis of variation in the availability of religious and nonreligious philosophical legal exemptions across Western democracies, finding legal system type to correlate with a state's philosophical attitude towards exemptions. Common law systems lead to more exemptions ("accommodation-of-differences") whereas civil law systems correlate with fewer exemptions ("exemption-skepticism").
