Russell Hittinger, William K. Warren Chair of Catholic Studies at the University of Tulsa, and author of texts often found in HACS syllabi, is interviewed about the newly republished book by Jacques Maritain, Scholasticism and Politics. The publisher says of Maritain:
Maritain’s political philosophy limns the conditions necessary to make the individual more fully human in all respects. His integral humanism is twofold: The person’s private good is subordinate to the (temporal) common good of the community; however, as a person with a supernatural end, one’s ‘spiritual good’ is superior to society — and this is something that all political communities should recognize.
