Virtuous Society


La nouvelle Jerusalem


I’ve just come across a very thoughtful blog produced by a young returned missionary, and I want to mention it here for those who might be interested:


The title of the blog strikes me in particular, I suppose, because one of my favorite books in the Islamic philosophical tradition — in certain ways, but by no means all, something of an Islamized version of Plato’s Republic (another favorite of mine) — is al-Farabi’s The Virtuous City.  And because I’ve always had a strong interest in the notion of “utopia” and the social order of the Millennium.  Not that that’s what Tom Stringham’s blog is necessarily about . . .

Atheists just happen to disbelieve in one more god than I do?
Has a court just ruled it "patently offensive" to express an anti-abortion viewpoint?
