Ethics at the Edges of Law

Christian Moralists and American Legal Thought

Cathleen Kaveny

  • Proposes new methodological approaches to Christian ethics-using law as a source and conversation partner
  • Shows how religion can move beyond treating law as a locus of the culture wars to seeing it as a source of moral knowledge and wisdom
  • Demonstrates how examples from secular law can help us integrate special ethics, like medical ethics, with broader questions of social justice
