Above, we wrote that Socrates believed the most terribly harmed of all human beings was the tyrant who was able to commit great wrongdoing for many years without being held accountable to justice.

These are not expendable items. If you fail to honor the human dignity of one person who is not like you, is it any less a product of ignorance than the evil of those who mass murder the people they identify as different.

Preparing a textbook that satisfies such a broad range of needs and interests is a daunting task, but also extremely rewarding. Thus, human rights are seen as a matter of socio-historical context.

If you have a question, please line up at the microphone to be recognized and I am going to sit down and let Professor Stackhouse field this, unless you get unruly, in which case I will try to do something about it, but I trust that we have a very well mannered group here.

It is a natural capacity of our humanity. Is your confidence in your existing knowledge a sound basis for all future action in the absence of future learning and thinking.

We cannot afford to wait until we are swept away by a tsunami of harm before we recognize the presence of real evil in our society. What is it about such claims that can facilitate or impede dialogue. One of my former colleagues, Mark Heim, has written this new book called Salvations and in volume three of this series, Jean mentioned, I used quite a bit of that at certain points.

We happily assembled a multidisciplinary team of voices from philosophy, theology, biblical studies, psychology, cultural anthropology, and medical ethics. But this is both philosophically problematic and inconsistent with the biblical teaching on the image of God. Instead of the collapse of reasoned examination being a requirement for most instances of manifestation, the inverse of the law requires that reasoned examination be alive and well.

It is a social historical reality that is not eternal. It is a tragedy to live a whole life being absolutely sure that this law or action is just and that law or action is unjust without ever thinking about the question, "What is justice.
