Society and Sanity : Understanding How to Live Well Together

Society and Sanity : Understanding How to Live Well Together

Description

If there are two words that seem not to fit together they are society and sanity. Spend twenty minutes on the freeway or ten minutes reading the newspaper, or ponder the religious and political conflicts in some regions of the world, and you will understand the point. Yet if people are to thrive--to live fully and together in peace-- we must have sanity when it comes to society. And that requires sanity when it comes to thinking about man. Sanity involves seeing things as they really are. Social sanity requires seeing man as he really is--to grasp who and what human beings are and what sort of social arrangements help or hinder human flourishing. In this classic work, Society and Sanity, Catholic thinker Frank Sheed brings his brilliant mind and lucid writing style to bear on the good human society. By explaining perennial truths about human nature based on the wisdom of Catholic social ethics, Sheed's book is as pertinent today with our controversies about love, the nature of marriage, the role of government, the relationship of law and morality and of Church and State, and the duties of the citizen, as when he penned the work over a half a century ago.
