Is Social Justice A Form Of Statecraft?, Craig Hovey

Craig Hovey

In this article, the author focuses on the objections of H. Tristram Engelhardt to the concept of social justice and some issues relative to the ethics of infanticide. The author examines the possibility for social justice to be a form of statecraft, the distinctive moral practices and beliefs, and the status of Christian morality. The author argues that Engelhardt has underestimated the complex nature of political discourse in diverse societies.
