Abstract

This book is more important than its title suggests. For it is not so much a book about intractable disputes about natural law, but how contemporary natural law theory might help us explain, respond to and even help solve the intractable moral disputes that are wrenching the social and political fabric of the United States, growing in post-Christian Europe, and constraining the opportunities for global collaboration based on ethical norms rather than self-interest or power.
