One of the books of 20th Century Political Thinkers series by Rowman & Littlefield publishers 1998, 241 pages, paperback. Written by Fr James V. Schall


In this book, distinguished theologian and political scientist James V. Schall explores Maritain’s political philosophy, demonstrating that Maritain understood society, state, and government in the tradition of Aristotle and Aquinas, of natural law and human rights and duties. Schall pays particular attention to the ways in which evil appears in political forms, and how this evil can be dealt with morally.
