Natural Law and Contemporary Public Policy
David Forte, Editor
Rooted in Western classical and medieval philosophies, the natural law movement of the last few decades seeks to rediscover fundamental moral truths. In this book, prominent thinkers demonstrate how natural law can be used to resolve a wide range of complex social, political, and constitutional issues by addressing controversial subjects that include the family, taxation, war, racial discrimination, medical technology, and sexuality.

This volume will be of value to those working in philosophy, political science, and legal theory, as well as to policy analysts, legislators, and judges.
David F. Forte is professor of law at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University. He teaches and publishes in the fields of jurisprudence, constitutional law, and legal history.
