Abstract:

The mind of French philosopher Jacques Maritain reflected on subjects as varied as art and ethics, theology and psychology, history and metaphysics. Maritain's work on the theoretical groundings of politics arose from his diverse studies. In this book, theologian and political scientist James V. Schall explores Maritain's political philosophy, demonstrating that Maritain understood society, state, and government within the framework of natural law and human rights and duties, in the tradition of Aristotic and Aquinas. Schall pays particular attention to the ways in which evil appears in political forms and how this evil can be dealt with morally. Schall's study will be of great importance to students and scholars of political science, philosophy, and theology.
