"Natural law is a controversial subject but one of great significance in the ongoing and increasingly important discussion about the foundations of moral reasoning. The essays of this volume examine natural moral law, different natural law theories, and the role that natural law can and should play in our contemporary society.

All contributors agree that natural law is a concept that cannot and must not be dismissed and that is in need of a careful retrieval.
