Reason, Religion, and Natural Law

From Plato to Spinoza

Edited by Jonathan A. Jacobs

  • Includes study of Plato and the Stoics as well as Jewish thinkers and different currents of thought in the Christian tradition.
  • Examines Scotus , Ockham, and Aquinas.
  • Thoroughly discusses Spinoza's relation to the ancient heritage and to modern thought.
  • The essays highlight features of natural law theorizing that are integral to it yet have not received the attention they deserve.
  • They also connect significant elements of the history of natural law theorizing with enduringly important metaethical concerns.
