Item Description...
Overview
The Responsible Self was H. Richard Niebuhr's most important work in Christian ethics, and it remains a landmark contribution to the field. Here Niebuhr probes the fundamental character of the moral life. He finds the key in the concept of responsibility, which implies not only the freedom and flexibility of responsiveness to others but also a guiding ideal of unlimited concern that goes beyond vague norms and narrow codes. The book is based on lectures delivered by Niebuhr at Glasgow University. James M. Gustafson, who was Niebuhr's colleague at Yale Divinity School, provides a brilliant introduction.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
the importance of responsibility  Jan 28, 2000
H. Richard Niebuhr's The Responsible Self is a classic in Christian ethics. Niebuhr argues that humans are neither simply 'goal seeking' creatures nor simply 'rule-following' creatures, but are 'responsive' and hence, responsible. We are 'answerers' who must first ask "What is going on here?" and then respond to that assessment with a 'fitting' answer. The importance of this short and readable work should not be underestimated. Niebuhr's approach spawned an interest in perspective and vision in ethics that is carried on by contemporary thinkers such as James Gustafson and Stanley Hauerwas.
