1 Mary Ann Glendon Traditions in Turmoil
ip 1932589244 / 9781932589245 
That ours is a time of intellectual, cultural, moral, and religious turmoil does not need to be argued. What does need to be argued, and what Glendon argues with force and freshness, is that our response to turmoil requires a greater honesty in coming to terms with tradition, and with traditions in conflict. That is little understood by many on both the political left and right. Quoting one of her favorite thinkers, theologian Bernard Lonergan, she urges us to be “big enough to be at home in the both and old and new; and painstaking enough to work out one at a time the transitions to be made.” Working within the capacious structure of the Christian intellectual tradition, most reflectively and generously articulated in Catholic teaching, Glendon constructively engages alternative ways of thinking about what it means to be human and what is required to nurture a society worthy of human beings. As the reader will see, her work ranges far and wide, and it goes deep. There is hardly a subject she addresses that does not change the way we think about it.Length: 484 pages Edition: Paperback
