Reviews

"We are finally beginning to see that casuistry, once so despised, points a way out of the great dilemmas in moral reasoning we face today. To read this superb book is to emerge from a cloud of unknowing."—John W. O'Malley, SJ, distinguished professor of church history, Weston Jesuit School of Theology

"No one who is interested in the structure of moral reasoning can afford to ignore these scholarly essays."—Richard M. Gula, SS, professor of moral theology, St. Patrick's Seminary

"The Moral Life is a tour de force that probes the fundamental question of what prompts humans to act morally. Profound, original, challenging, and full of hope, Keenan's magisterial voice is evident on every page as he makes the case that our deepest connections, forged in shared vulnerability, are foundational for the moral life."—Linda Hogan, professor of ecumenics, Trinity College Dublin
