In this course of lectures, Professor Hadley Arkes seeks to recall the classic connection between morality and law. For law works by sweeping away personal choice and private judgment and replacing them with a public rule, meant to be enforced on everyone. And that state of affairs can be justified only if the law can, in fact, appeal to an understanding of the things that are more generally or universally right or wrong.

Truth and Objectivity Work for the Common Good
This book correlates with the everyday decisions and perspectives we have to deal with where we need to operate in truth and for the common good. He gives a superior and scholarly understanding of what is significant in our communications and decisions rather than rigidly trying to perform under rules and regulations. We don't live in a perfect world or deal with people who will understand us if we just say what is on our mind, or how we feel so we need discernment. Above all we need to come to a place of discernment that is objective and based on truth, something that is above our natural inclinations.
This is a philosophical dissertation and it is so practical and understandable as well as being something one can put into practice. I love the enlightenment he gave.
Very lucid and teachable approach. He puts the information on the practical level.
Yes! I listened to part 1 and 2 throughout the day and then listened to them again.
I am very adept at Philosophy and Theology and well educated in both though I do not have a doctorate. I found this series very relevant to life rather than just education and theoretical. I appreaciate the matter of morals and laws coming together rather than just law ruling.
