Contemporary Natural Law Theory

FRS 103

Info tab content
Natural Law theory has a rich and varied history extending back to the classical period. Although in recent decades it has often been associated with religious thinkers, especially Catholic ones, it also has non-Catholic, and even non-religious adherents. This theory offers a first-personal account of practical reason that acknowledges diverse basic values as fundamental aspects of living a fulfilled life. For some, contemporary natural law theory offers a compelling alternative to other ethical theories. For others, it offers a stimulating sparring partner that helps philosophers of different perspectives to refine their own argument.
