The encyclical "Veritatis splendour" established certain authoritative directions for doing Christian ethics from a Catholic perspective. The "Moral Thought" presents the foundations of moral theology and sets out parameters for the discipline that will continue to shape how the Church teaches about both the good of the human person and the norms that guide human action. This text explores the basic and central elements of the theological thinking behind the encyclical. It considers the principal methodological issues and substantive questions that must shape any adequate moral theology in the post-Veritatus period.
Announcing a New Series: Catholic Moral Thought The Catholic Moral Thought series is designed to provide students with a comprehensive presentation of both the principles of Christian conduct and the specific teachings and precepts for fulfilling the requirements of the Christian life. Soundly based in the teaching of the Church, the volumes set out in depth, in a manner and style suitable for scholars, students, and general readers, the basic principles of Catholic moral thought and the application of those principles within areas of ethical concern that are of paramount importance today. In its initial phase, the series will include an introductory volume and volumes on sexual ethics, bioethics, and social ethics.About the Author:
