Voted one ofChristianity Today's1998 Books of the Year!With uninterrupted clarity, frequent eloquence and occasional humor, J. Budziszewski presents and defends the natural law tradition in what is at once a primer for students and a vigorous argument for scholars.Written on the Heartexpounds the work of the leading architects of theory on natural law, including Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas and John Locke. It also takes up contemporary philosophy, theology and political science, colorfully running against the intimidating tide of advanced pluralism that finds natural law so difficult to tolerate.Throughout the volume, Budziszewski sure-footedly achieves his self-confessed aim of displaying the "subtlety, richness and intellectual surprise" of the natural law tradition.

J Budziszewski

J. Budziszewski (Ph.D., Yale University) is a professor in the departments of Government and Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. Budziszewski is an ethical and political philosopher. He is also a nationally-known authority on the tradition of Natural Law, which is germane to intelligent design because natural teleology is at heart a design concept.
Much of his work focuses on the repression of moral knowledge -- on what goes wrong when we try to convince ourselves that we don't know what we really do. Another of his interests is the intersection of philosophy with theology. Budziszewski's books include Ask me anything (two volumes), Evangelicals in the Public Square (2006), What We Can't Not Know: A Guide (2003), The Revenge of Conscience: Politics and the Fall of Man (1999), and Written on the Heart: The Case for Natural Law (1997), which received a Christianity Today book award. Budziszewski's works appear in both scholarly and popular venues, and he has also written several books for young people.-Editorial Review.
