9780521173360: Patriarchal Religion, Sexuality, and Gender: A Critique of New Natural Law

Fundamentalist forms of religion today claim authority everywhere, including the debates over the politics and constitutional law of liberal democracies. This book examines this general question through its critical evaluation of a recent school of thought: that of the new natural lawyers. The new natural lawyers are the lawyers of the current Vatical hierarchy, polemically concerned to defend its retrograde views on matters of sexuality and gender in terms of arguments that, in fact, notably lack the philosophical rigor of the historical Thomism they claim to honor. The book critiques forms of fundamentalism and offers an original argument both for how they arose and why they are unreasonable in contemporary circumstances.

Book Description:

By looking at Thomas Aquinas' school of thought and comparing it to the new natural lawyers, this book offers a glimpse at the disconnect. Fundamentalist forms of religion claim authority everywhere, even in the secular United States. This book examines the new natural lawyers' flawed way of viewing hierarchy and offer a critique of the forms of fundamentalism and how they arose . The book also shows that alternative forms of Christianity are available that are free from such defects.

Review:

'Nicholas Bamforth and David A. J. Richards make a full frontal attack on the philosophical consistency, social relevance, and political desirability of new natural law ... will be welcomed ... this text presents challenging philosophical insights as well as informative commentary on the role of doctrinal religion in the construction of seemingly secular law. ... constructive mode ... meticulously argued, well-written, and thoroughly annotated ... provides a detailed map of the philosophical, personal, and political affiliations between Grisez, Finnis, George and, most importantly, it closely traces their arguments to 'illiberal prescriptions' concerning sexuality and gender. ... This is the gap in the philosophical investigation of new natural law that the text wishes to fill.' Politics and Religion

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Legal theorists are familiar with John Finnis s book Natural Law and Natural Rights, but usually overlook his interventions in US constitutional debates and his membership of a group of conservative Catholic thinkers, the new natural lawyers , led by theologian Germain Grisez. In fact, Finnis has repeatedly advocated conservative positions concerning lesbian and gay rights, contraception and abortion, and his substantive moral theory (as he himself acknowledges) derives from Grisez. Bamforth and Richards provide a detailed explanation of the work of the new natural lawyers within and outside the Catholic Church - the first truly comprehensive explanation available to legal theorists - and criticize Grisez s and Finnis s arguments concerning sexuality and gender. New natural law is, they argue, a theology rather than a secular theory, and one which is unappealing in a modern constitutional democracy. This book will be of interest to legal and political theorists, ethicists, theologians and scholars of religious history. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521173360
