Show Summary Details


Faith alone does not yield an integrated religious life, and this chapter describes various ways in which religiously committed people can have lives with a kind of unity that permits flourishing in many domains: not only religious, but also aesthetic, intellectual, political, and scientific. The chapter gives special attention to the social aspect of human life and proposes standards by which religious citizens can participate in politics with due regard both for their own religion and for fellow citizens who differ in religion or are entirely secular.

Keywords: unity; intellect; science; politics; secularity
