About this title


Based on the Cambridge 1986-87 Stanton Lectures in the Philosophy of Religion, this volume is concerned with the nature of political society, and with the errors and faulty arguments that have been used to buttress a "liberal modernist" view of the state and of political obligations. The author argues that liberal modernism, which is determinedly secular and untraditional, has been a destructive influence in religion and in human understanding of community living. In order to secure a decent social order, he believes humanity must rediscover its allegiance to a sacred order which is represented by family loyalties, a respect for tradition, and an attention to the wider interests of the global and historical community.


"This is a rich book that defies a simple summary. It is worth reading by itself or, one hopes, as a propaedeutic to the two remaining volumes in this series."--Journal of Church and State
