Reclaiming Goodness: Education and the Spiritual Quest begins with the premise that sound models for achieving both spiritual fulfillment and the "good life" are lacking in contemporary culture.

Reclaiming Goodness charts a way to reintegrate ethical and spiritual values with the values of critical thought and reason.
