Publisher's Description

The essays contained in this book offer exploratory studies towards a constructive account of "fundamental ethics," that is, a basic description of the constitutive components of the moral life. Thomas Ogletree sketches out the systematic components of Christian ethics, relating them to symbolic ethics--the mediation of Christian traditions of moral understanding--and practical ethics--the critical appropriation of scientific studies of factors controlling human action.
