Format: Paperback
WOW !!!!!!! This really is an amazing book covering all aspects of contemporary casuistry, including the challenges faced by casuists. Whilst 'The Abuse of Casuistry' by Jonsen and Toulmin is considered to be the seminal work in the area of casuistry, I firmly believe that Miller's book continues where the former left off and helps to answer outstanding questions that fall into the realm(s) of both epistemology and hermeneutics. You cannot undertake any study of casuistry without reference to this book and its wisdom.
