Publisher's Description

In this new revised edition of his groundbreaking work,
Professor J. Budziszewski questions the modern assumption
that moral truths are unknowable. With clear and
logical arguments he rehabilitates the natural law tradition
and restores confidence in a moral code based upon human

What We Can't Not Know explains the rational foundation
of what we all really know to be right and wrong and shows
how that foundation has been kicked out from under western
society. Having gone through stages of atheism and nihilism
in his own search for truth, Budziszewski understands the
philosophical and personal roots of moral relativism. With
wisdom born of both experience and rigorous intellectual
inquiry, he offers a firm foothold to those who are attempting
either to understand or to defend the reasonableness of
traditional morality.

While natural law bridges the chasms that can be caused
by religious and philosophical differences, Budziszewski
believes that natural law theory has entered a new phase,
in which theology will again have pride of place. While religious
belief might appear to hamper the search for common
ground, Budziszewski demonstrates that it is not an obstacle,
but a pathway to apprehending universal norms of behavior.
