Item description for The Context of Casuistry (Moral Traditions and Moral Arguments) by James F. S. J. Keenan, Thomas a. Shannon & Albert R. Jonsen...
We are finally beginning to see that casuistry, once so despised, points a way out of the great dilemmas in moral reasoning we face today. To read this superb book is to emerge from a cloud of unknowing."-John W. O'Malley, S.J., Distinguished Professor of Church History, Weston Jesuit School of Theology "The current debate about casuistic method and the relation of case reasoning to ethical theory can benefit from a closer study of the history. . . . The Context of Casuistry contributes importantly to this discovery."-from the foreword by Albert R. Jonsen, coauthor of The Abuse of Casuistry "No one who is interested in the structure of moral reasoning can afford to ignore these scholarly essays."-Richard M. Gula, S.S., Professor of Moral Theology, St. Patrick's Seminary
