9781586174811: What We Can't Not Know: A Guide

Revised and Expanded Edition

In this new revised edition of his groundbreaking work, Professor J. Budziszewski questions the modern assumption that moral truths are unknowable. With clear and logical arguments he rehabilitates the natural law tradition and restores confidence in a moral code based upon human nature.

What We Can't Not Know explains the rational foundation of what we all really know to be right and wrong and shows how that foundation has been kicked out from under western society. Having gone through stages of atheism and nihilism in his own search for truth, Budziszewski understands the philosophical and personal roots of moral relativism. With wisdom born of both experience and rigorous intellectual inquiry, he offers a firm foothold to those who are attempting either to understand or to defend the reasonableness of traditional morality.

While natural law bridges the chasms that can be caused by religious and philosophical differences, Budziszewski believes that natural law theory has entered a new phase, in which theology will again have pride of place. While religious belief might appear to hamper the search for common ground, Budziszewski demonstrates that it is not an obstacle, but a pathway to apprehending universal norms of behavior.

From the Author:

This book is about the lost world of common moral truths -- what we all really know about right and wrong. I hope to achieve two things. The first is to bolster the confidence of plain people in the rational foundations of their common moral sense. This requires not only explaining what these foundations are, but also explaining why this common sense is under attack -- especially explaining how it is even possible for what we all really know to be denied, and why this doesn't mean that isn't really known. The second goal is to present the explanation in such a way that all of the people who think and write about the common truths can achieve a firmer alliance in their defense. This is necessary because the traditions which do affirm the common truths speak in such different ways that the unanimity of their affirmation is obscured.

My goal is less to present my own theory (though of course I have one) than to defend the universal moral inheritance of the human race. Because many are hostile to this universal inheritance, I expect to hit a few nerves. That may make it a bit harder than usual to know whether the more hysterical sort of reviewer is reacting to what I've actually said, or merely expressing fury against things like the Ten Commandments. For this reason, I encourage potential readers to read Amazon's samples from the book and decide for themselves what they think. Happy reading!

From the Inside Flap:

We are passing through an eerie phase of history in which the things that everyone really knows are treated as unheard of, a time in which the elements of common decency are themselves attacked as indecent. But J. Budziszewski, author of the acclaimed Revenge of Conscience, sets out to explore the lost world of common moral truths—what we all really know about right and wrong.

Bolstering the confidence of plain people in their common moral sense, Budziszewski explains its rational foundations and why it is under attack. His bracing account prepares us to address the uncertain, the disoriented, and the self-deceived among our neighbors in a way which may bring them back to moral sanity.

"A gentle but incisive diagnosis of our daily evasions and rationalizations." Russell Hittinger, University of Tulsa
