Christian Ethics and Commonsense Morality goes against the grain of various postmodern approaches to morality in contemporary religious ethics. In this book, Jung seeks to provide a new framework in which the nature of common Christian moral beliefs and practices can be given a new meaning. He suggests that, once major philosophical assumptions behind postmodern theories of morality are called into question, we may look at Christian morality in quite a different light. On his account, Christian morality is a historical morality insofar as it is rooted in the rich historical traditions of the Christian church. Yet this kind of historical dependence does not entail the evidential dependence of all moral beliefs on historical traditions. It is possible to argue for the epistemic autonomy of moral beliefs, according to which Christian and other moral beliefs can be justified independently of their historical sources. The particularity of Christian morality lies not in its particular historical sources that also function as the grounds of justification, but rather in its explanatory and motivational capacity to further articulate the kind of moral knowledge that is readily available to most human beings and to enable people to act upon their moral knowledge.

About the Author:

Kevin Jung is Associate Professor of Christian Ethics at Wake Forest University, USA.

Review:

"This work goes against the tide in a manner that is most refreshing. It shuns shallow intellectual trends in order to present a nuanced conception of morality and the possibility to know things about moral matters. This furthermore is done in a way that tears down unhelpful dichotomizations between philosophy and theology. The claims in this book are as brave as the level of argumentation is high." ―Per Sundman, Uppsala University, Sweden
