C S Lewis and Natural Law THE HUMAN RACE is haunted by the idea of doing whatis right. In the first five chapters of Mere Christianity, C.S.

What they have in mind is a law of fair play or a rul

CAPITAL PUNNISHMENT At present, there are thirty-six states in the United States and over one hundred countries that have legislation enforcing capital punishment for crimes of murder or rape.

Cicero Cicero, was truly a man of the state. His writings also show us he was equally a man of philosophical temperament and affluence. Yet at times these two forces within Cicero clash and contradict with the early stoic teachings. Cicero gradually adopted the stoic lifestyle but not altogether entirely, and this is somewhat due to the fact of what it was like to be a roman of the time. The morals of everyday Rome conflicted with some of the stoic ideals that were set by early stoicism. Thus, C
