That’s the title of a new book by Paul DeHart, professor of political science at Lee University. In a wide-ranging discussion of analytic philosophy, metaphysical and moral realism, natural teleology, and moral theory, DeHart builds on the work of Hadley Arkes, J. Budziszewski, and the analytic philosopher Robert Koons. The result is a unique blend of Budziszeski’s What We Can’t Not Know approach to natural law thinking, Arkes’s “logic of morals” going Beyond the Constitution , and Koons’ philosophical Realism Regained . The Claremont Review of Books has posted a review I wrote of the book online here .
