Brian Stiltner seeks to repair this deficit in his study Religion and the Common Good.

He explores the meaning of the common good and the prospects for pursuing it in a liberal society. Focusing on the conceptions of common good in liberalism and communitarianism the former stressing individual rights and social tolerance, the latter stressing a community s shared history and social practices Stiltner argues that the two theories are not as irreconcilable as they seem, that they can be combined into a communal liberalism.

Stiltner provides an outline of the twentieth-century Catholic common good theory as an example of such a synthesis. A fascinating study, Religion and the Common Good will be an invaluable volume for scholars of social ethics, religion, theology, philosophy and political science.
