The papers included in this work revisit the tradition of Catholic social teaching with a view to assessing historical developments in light of social teaching and to assessing the corpus of teaching in light of historical developments. The papers generally discuss the topics of social philosophy, the historical context of Rerum novarum, social sciences and ethics, political thought, and modern economics. Co-published with the Oxford Philosophy Trust.

Francis P. McHugh, Samuel M. Natale
