The James Wilson Institute and the Center for Religion, Culture & Democracy were pleased to present this webinar on the resemblances and divergences of natural law traditions through the lenses of different faiths.
Natural Law provides a framework for understanding the law, the rightly ordered society, and morality that is accessible to all through plain reason. It does not require or even demand a particular religious perspective. It is most commonly associated, however, with the Christian moral tradition. But it is not an exclusively Christian way of understanding the world or engaging in moral reasoning. The James Wilson Institute and the Center for Religion, Culture & Democracy are pleased to co-present a unique webinar that explores the similarities and differences of natural law traditions through the lenses of different faiths. Panelists include JWI’s Hadley Arkes, the CRCD’s Jordan Ballor, Jewish political theorist and Villanova Professor Daniel Mark, and Islamic author and public intellectual Mustafa Akyol of the Cato Institute’s Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity. The panel is moderated by the CRCD’s executive director Trey Dimsdale.
