Description

Zusatztext This book is an interdisciplinary tour de force. Michael Banner is a first-rate moral philosopher and theologian who has learned to think about the intricacies of social life like a first-rate anthropologist. He has written that rare kind of work that not only can teach you new things about topics you thought you knew well, but can transform the very way you think about them. Anyone interested in socially grounded moral philosophy or in the anthropology ofmorality or of Christianity should read it as soon as they can. Informationen zum Autor Michael Banner is Dean and Fellow at Trinity College, University of Cambridge. He has had wide involvement in ethical thinking and policy making in government and the private sector, as chair or member of committees across Whitehall Departments from Health to Defence. His publications include Christian Ethics: A Brief History (Wiley Blackwell, 2009) and Christian Ethics and Contemporary Moral Problems (CUP, 1999). Klappentext The book provides an exploration of how Christianity has thought about what it is to live a human life and asks how Christianity's understanding of being relates to and challenges alternative contemporary accounts as they are mapped and explored in social anthropology.
