The late Leroy S. Rouner was professor of philosophy, religion, and philosophical theology at Boston University.

“Leroy Rouner frames the work’s approach to community in terms of postmodernity and spiritual loss. No longer satisfied by the claims of modernity, and confronted with the cultural pluralism of the world civilization, we seek ‘a spiritual place, perhaps even a geographic place, where we belong’ " — Contemporary Sociology
