The linkage between conversion and religious freedom has been theorised with differentapproaches. However relevant they may be, these approaches often have the downside of starting with a given definition of “conversion”, “religion” and hence “religious freedom”. The analysis of conversion (whether or not it is considered to be strictly religious) would in fact suppose not to interpret the conversion as derivative from the convert, but the convert from the conversion, i.e. in what the conversion authorizes. The question is therefore that of the conditions of production and of testing the concept of conversion, consequently of the expected operationality, of the initial double fiction of an irreducibly singular transformation and of a change, through this, of an order felt as unbearable. The importance of the phenomena of conversion could well refer to the problem of pluralism, no longer only religious today, but also social, ethical and political. Conversion would thus be experienced as a protection against the ambivalence intrinsically linked to the plurality of forms of life which are now ours.
