 Our Description

How do we make sense of life?  How should we treat others?  How should we reasonably be expected to be treated by others? When human life is at stake, are there reasonable principles we can rely on to guide our actions?  How should our laws be framed to protect human life? What kind of society should be built?

Many people rely on their religious beliefs to answer these questions.  But not everyone accepts the same religious premises or recognizes the same spiritual authorities.  Are there "public arguments"-reasons that can be given that do not presuppose agreement on religious grounds or common religious commitments-that can guide our thoughts and actions, as well as our laws and public policies?

In Ten Universal Principles: A Brief Philosophy of the Life Issues, Jesuit Father Robert Spitzer sets out, in a brief, yet highly-readable and lucid style, ten basic principles that must govern the reasonable person's thinking and acting about life issues. A highly-regarded philosopher, Father Spitzer provides an intelligent outline for thinking and talking about human life.  This book is a powerful tool for persuasively articulating and effectively inculturating a prolife philosophy.

Fr. Robert Spitzer, SJ, is a philosopher, educator, author and former President of Gonzaga University. He is founder and President of the Magis Institute, an organization dedicated to public education on the relationship among the disciplines of physics, philosophy, reason, and faith. He is the head of the Ethics and Performance Institute which delivers web-based ethics education to corporations and individuals. He is also President of the Spitzer Center of Ethical Leadership, which delivers similar curricula to non-profit organizations. His other books include Healing the Culture and Five Pilars of the Spiritual Life.

This item received 4 stars overall. A high-level look at the philosophy of pro-life issues

I first discovered Fr. Robert Spitzer through his recent book, New Proofs for the Existence of God, which goes beyond the classical arguments for God’s existence and moves into modern physics and philosophy. In that book he uses high-level scientific and mathematical discoveries like string theory, universal space-time asymmetry, and quantum cosmology to make a compelling case for God. And he does it well: it’s the first book I would hand to a skeptical scientist or atheist mathematician.

Fr. Spitzer’s new book, Ten Universal Principles: A Brief Philosophy of the Life Issues (Ignatius Press, paperback, 155 pages) takes a similar intellectual approach, but this time he's defending the pro-life philosophy. Without resorting to religion, Spitzer explores te Full Review...
