"Religious liberty and the human good" is a defense of a robust conception of the obligations of governments to respect and protect religious freedom for the sake of the basic human right of religion itself, considered as an irreducible dimension of integral human well-being and fulfillment. This methodologically Aristotelian and perfectionist approach to the defense of religious liberty provides a principled way of defending a central freedom rationally and identifying its limits.
