Description

All of Charles Thomas Taylor's previous writings have attempted to reveal the universal rational foundation that undergirds all of the various ethical, political, and economic systems that best nurture human existence. With a latent recognition that the presence of symbolism in other areas of human concern, such as in religion or the fine arts, essentially communicates ethical value, Taylor presents his new book to consider the current relevance or irrelevance of religion and art for the ethical life.

About Author

This is the author's fifth book and his third book published under an imprint of the Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group. His previous book, Symbiosism, suggests how a uniform and practicable universal morality can be derived from the best ethical ideas of long-established religions and philosophies. Toward World Soverignty, also from University Press of America, renews the call for world federalism that provoked an intense albeit brief interest among the world's democracies immediately following World War II. Charles Thomas Taylor lives in Colorado where he is Director of Finance at Airport Development Group, Inc.
