his book is a systematic philosophy of community, an ethical theory rooted in philosophical anthropology and metaphysics. The book examines such questions as: What is community? What does the language of community reveal? How do we distinguish genuine community from its counterfeits? How is community established? How does it grow? How is it weakened and destroyed? How is community related to religion? to praxis? to law? How realistic is the ideal of community?
