Summary
This book began as an attempt to explore historical ways of grounding moral values objectively in the nature of reality. Unconvinced that we live in a value-free universe, that face and value are ultimately interrelated, or that we have to create all our own values rather that discovering the good, I wanted to explore the fact-value connection in the larger context of metaphysical and theological views. What emerged is a more pervasive linkage than I had anticipated between religious and moral beliefs. Rorty is in measure right. But the claim that values are somehow objective, "out there, " is a legacy on which we still need to draw
