Theism and Public Policy

Full Product Description

Theists often argue this is a Christian nation, and therefore theistic sensibilities, language, and insight should play a role in developing the policities and procedures that guide public life. Nontheist often counter by arguing this isn't a Christian nation, and public life is harmed by the limited sense of morality and ethics provided by theism(s). Hence, public policy should be guided by secular ideals not tied to any particular mode of theism and that highlight the best of our democratic principles. Often missing from this exchange, however, is nature of theism's actual presence in public life: Does theism dominant the language and practices of public life in the United States? This volume explores this question from a humanist perspective, and in so doing it provides insight into the relationship of religion to public policy, and offers ways to advance a more democratic and secular public arena.

Theism and Public Policy was published by Palgrave Macmillan in December 2014. The ISBN for Theism and Public Policy is 9781137472182.
