Booknews
Twenty-two essays based on presentations at an April 1996 conference held at Cleveland State University explore the roots of natural law and demonstrate how this philosophy, which has enjoyed a revival in the past few decades, can be used to address a wide range of social, political, and constitutional issues. Of interest to those working in philosophy, political science, and legal theory, and to policy analysts, legislators, and others looking for some guiding principles with regard to issues connected with the family, taxation, war, racial discrimination, medical technology, and sexuality.
