Religious Commitment and Secular Reason by Robert Audi

Book Description

Many religious people are alarmed about features of the current age - violence in the media, a pervasive hedonism, a marginalization of religion, and widespread abortion. These concerns influence politics, but just as there should be a separation between church and state, so should there be a balance between religious commitments and secular arguments calling for social reforms. Robert Audi offers a principle of secular rationale, which does not exclude religious grounds for action but which rules out restricting freedom except on grounds that any rational citizen would accept. The book describes the essential commitments of free democracy, explains how religious and secular moral considerations can be integrated to facilitate co-operation in a world of religious pluralism, and proposes ideals of civic virtue that express the mutual respect on which democracy depends. Audi offers a balanced and sophisticated treatment of the relations between religion and politics in a modern, secular society.

Books By Author Robert Audi

Means, Ends, and Persons by Robert Audi Means, Ends, and Persons, Hardback (January 2016)

This book is a full-scale account of the morally important ideas of treating persons merely as means and treating them as ends. Audi clarifies these independently of Kant, but with implications for understanding him, and presents a theory of conduct that enhances their usefulness both in ethical theory and in practical ethics.

Rational Belief by Robert Audi Rational Belief, Hardback (August 2015)

This book is a wide-ranging treatment of central topics in epistemology. It provides conceptions of belief and knowledge, offers a theory of how they are grounded in our experience and in the social context of testimony, and connects them with the will and with action, moral responsibility, and intellectual virtue.

Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy by Robert Audi Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy, Paperback (April 2015)

This is a rich, readable one-volume compendium of philosophical ideas and definitions, a tool for anyone seriously interested in philosophy.
