A Moral Enterpriseby Kenneth L. Grasso, Robert P. Hunt
Francis P. Canavan has been described by Gerard V. Bradley as "one of the great political theorists of the past thirty years," and Robert P. George has hailed him as our "most incisive and trenchant critic" of liberal judicial activism. In this collection of essays by colleagues, admirers, and former students of Father Canavan, the intellectual and moral foundations of democratic government are explored, especially in light of Canavan's Burke scholarship, his contributions to Catholic social thought, his critique of the liberal intellectual tradition, and his analysis of the problems that confront a pluralistic society such as ours.
Kenneth L. Grasso is Professor of Political Science and Director of the Project on American Constitutionalism at Southwest Texas State University. Robert P. Hunt is Professor of Political Science at Kean University.
