Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0754612627, Hardcover)Focusing in detail on the particular theory of natural law developed by John Finnis and Germain Grisez, this is an introductory account of the theory for those who are new to the field. It then broadens, assesses and advances the debate surrounding it, examining crucial philosophical, theological and ethical issues and opening up discussion beyond the confines of the Roman Catholic Church. Part One, on philosophical issues, opens with two broad chapters that locate Finnis/Grisez in relation to modern moral philosophy tradition and the Roman Catholic tradition of Thomism, and then follows with chapters on particularly key issues - rationality, the human good, and the nature of moral absolutes. Part Two, on theological dimensions, locates Finnis/Grisez in relation to the ethics of two very prominent 20th-century Protestants, Barth and Hauerwas, and examines the major area of theological controversy within the Roman Catholic community - how to conceive of the "Church's" authority with regard to moral matters. Part Three covers a range of ethical issues: the use of legal force, bioethics, sexual ethics, the ethics of gender and environmental ethics. Finnis and Grisez themselves provide a concluding chapter which responds to the preceding chapters.
