Abstract:

"In Religious Goodness & Political Rightness, Yong Huang offers a timely examination of the liberal and communitarian approaches to the conflicts between people's religious ideas of the Good and their political ideas of the Right. He criticizes the liberal idea that we should first construct a political idea of the Right and then bring our religious ideas of the Good into conformity with that. But he also criticizes the Communitarians, who believe that we should first determine a religious idea of the Good and then try to construct a political idea of the Right, based on the Good.".

"Both approaches fall short, according to Huang. Liberalism fails to see that politics cannot be neutral and fair to all religions by eliminating any place for religion of any kind in political life. Communitarianism fails to understand that politics based on one single religion may lead to political sectarianism or totalitarianism in a religiously pluralistic society."--BOOK JACKET.
