Item description for Political Order and the Plural Structure of Society (Emory University Studies in Law and Religion) by Skillen, James W. Skillen & Rockne M. McCarthy...
Overview This volume presents examples and evaluations of three forms of pluralist theory, those based on historical doctrines of custom and tradition, Catholic doctrines, of natural law and subsidiarity, and Calvinist doctrines of sphere sovereignty and creation respectively. The authors place each of these three forms of pluralism in the context of American thought, provide several nineteenth and twentieth century readings to illustrate the depth and diversity of each form, and then compare and evaluate them at length.
