The Moral Foundations of Civil Society

Front Cover
Transaction Publishers - Social Science - 235 pages

Roepke explores how nature, sex, religion, beauty and politics are all as meaningful as parts of the whole. Problems occur only when each segment attempts to become the whole of human existence. This volume combines distinct aspects of life. Half of the book is devoted to questions of economic and social life; the other half examines spiritual and natural life.
