Values in Public Life

Aspects of Common Goods

Edited by: Patrick Riordan

The unifying theme of the papers in this volume is the human good, analyzed from the perspectives of different disciplines. Their guiding intuition is that the topic of the human good is neglected. They draw attention to values which are present and operative in public life, and attempt to strengthen the intellectual resources available for talking about them. The disciplines of theology, philosophy, politics, sociology, economics and aesthetics are engaged in a conversation about a shared concern and strengthen the literacy for appreciating the values which are aspects of our common goods.
