Conscience and authority, religion and freedom, renewal and tradition: some of the main questions raised by Frederick Denison Maurice (1805 - 1872) are still at the centre of the debate on philosophy and anthropology, ethics and politics. Maurice, professor of theology and moral philosophy in Cambridge and in London, focuses his reflections on the concepts of conscience, social order and divine order, dealing with some of the most significant thinkers of the time, such as J.

After having outlined the formative years of Maurice, the book analyzes his writings, showing how the nature and the dynamics of conscience are at the core of the philosophical, religious and social issues considered by Maurice in a deeply critical perspective on philosophical attitudes such as rationalism, subjectivism, skepticism and modern empiricism.

Abstract

Conscience and authority, religion and freedom, renewal and tradition: some of the main questions raised by Frederick Denison Maurice (1805 - 1872) are still at the centre of the debate on philosophy and anthropology, ethics and politics. Maurice, professor of theology and moral philosophy in Cambridge and in London, focuses his reflections on the concepts of conscience, social order and divine order, dealing with some of the most significant thinkers of the time, such as J. Bentham, A. Comte, J.S. Mill, H. Mansel and J.H. Newman. After having outlined the formative years of Maurice, the book analyzes his writings, showing how the nature and the dynamics of conscience are at the core of the philosophical, religious and social issues considered by Maurice in a deeply critical perspective on philosophical attitudes such as rationalism, subjectivism, skepticism and modern empiricism.
