Human Nature and the Freedom of Public Religious Expression by Stephen G. Post

Human Nature and the Freedom of Public Religious Expression


Human Nature and the Freedom of Public Religious Expression by Stephen G. Post

Bioethicist Stephen G. Post argues that human beings are, by nature, inclined toward a presence in the universe that is higher than their own. In consequence, the institutions of everyday life are not justifed in censoring the spiritual and religious expression that arises from the human spirit.


Professor Post's thought transcends sectarian boundaries by reason of his stress on the givens of human nature. His rigorous demonstration that by nature humanity should enjoy and exercise freedom of religious expression uncovers the foundations, in natural theology, for liberty -- an important and urgent proposition. His book sets forth a strenuous argument on behalf of fundamental principles and demands a close reading.
