Philosophy, Religion, and Contemporary Life

Essays on Perennial Problems

Peter Berger, Sissela Bok, Robert Bellah, Edith Wyschogrod, George Rupp, and Huston Smith are among the distinguished authors who discuss, among other issues, the morality of capitalism, the need for a public philosophy in America, the phenomenon of man-made mass death, and the spiritual dimensions of psychoanalysis.
