Item Description...
DRAWING ON CURRENT RESEARCH IN SCIENCE and religion, distinguished bioethicist Stephen G. Post provocatively argues that human beings are, by nature, inclined toward a presence in the universe that is higher than their own. In consequence, the institutions of everyday life, such as schools, the workplace, and the public square, are not justified in censoring the spiritual and religious expression that freely arises from the wellspring of the human spirit. Post believes that privatization of religious expression, coupled with the imposition of a secular monism, is a departure from true liberal democracy in which citizens are free to assert themselves in ways that manifest their full nature. Utilizing research in the neurosciences, psychiatry, the social sciences, and evolutionary psychology, he provides scientific information supporting the idea, familiar in theories of natural law, that religious expression and freedom are essential human goods. Post's perspective privileges no particular religion, but rather asks that adherents to all faiths, including secularism, be allowed to freely express their core values in a civil, respectful, and public manner. Post calls for a recovery of the full meaning of liberal democracy in all domains of public life, so that we might again discover the value of freedom of expression.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
This Book Says it Like it Is  Jan 17, 2004
This is an incredible book, intellectually rigorous and fully accessible to the general reader. It is grounded in scientific data and open inquiry that suggests that there are at least two important spiritual moments in life which American society fails to nurture: during childhood and at times of crisis, particularly major illness. Hospitals ignore spiritual practice in favor of medical intervention, while fear of the First Amendment has led, not to free speech, but to virtual censorship of any spiritual expression in our public schools. Post's book names these problems, then engages in a lively exploration of the nature of human spirituality. In all cultures, he shows, people relate to a "Creative Presence." If you deal with religious issues in our society, this is your book.
