Conscience and Its Enemies: Confronting the Dogmas of Liberal Secularism

'“As a critic of liberalism, George is devastating. Generally attributing honest motives to his opponents, he nevertheless ruthlessly exposes [their] sophistries.”—National Review   “Puts George’s highly burnished philosophical and constitutional learning on full display. . . . George speaks for a sizable number of conscientious objectors to America’s ruling liberal secularism.” —The New York Times Book Review   “Not a dull or insignificant page in the whole volume. . . . I don’t think we get better, or more consequential, commentary on the modern crisis.” —The Washington Times   “Could not be more timely. A treasure trove of thought-provoking reflections by one of the best minds of our time.” —Mary Ann Glendon, from the foreword   “Brilliant . . . Should be required reading.” —Commentary   “George’s claim to that title [‘This country’s most influential conservative Christian thinker’] is made abundantly clear in this collection of incisive, accessible essays, which seek to expose and confront the dogmas of liberal secularism while also directing and deepening modern conservatism. . . . Intended for a wide audience, the book deserves one.” —Claremont Review of Books   “An important primer on the most pressing issues of our time . . .  George’s incomparable expertise will give even the most seasoned reader new insights.” —The Catholic World Report   “Few thinkers speak as clearly as Robert P. George. . . . He is a model democratic citizen. . . . The book offers some of the strongest arguments at all levels of public discourse, from anthropology to the meaning of conscience and marriage.” —Library of Law and Liberty   “One of the nation’s most respected legal theorists. . . . Even people who profoundly disagree with some of his conclusions [respect] his sheer brilliance, the analytic power of his arguments, the range of his knowledge . . . [and] a deeply principled conviction, a profound and enduring integrity.” —Elena Kagan, Supreme Court justice   “One of the most incisive legal and moral thinkers working today.” —First Things   “An indispensable man.” —Touchstone'
