Antonio Rosmini-Serbati (1797-1855) was one of the first natural law scholars to bring natural law thinking into a conversation with the market economic order that was beginning to emerge in Europe in the 19th century. His reflections on matters such as the origin, nature, and limits of private property, the role of the state, and the nature of human reason show him to be a unique, innovative thinker who nonetheless was determined to work within the parameters of Catholic doctrine. Many of these ideas are concretized in his seminal work The Constitution Under Social Justice, a text that has profound instights to offer those today seeking to integrate theology, philosophy, and economics into their conceptions of a social order that aspires to be both free and just.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Much misunderstood in his own time, Fr. Rosmini is surely a contemporary model for serious theological reflection on the political and economic order. The Constitution Under Social Justice is a masterpiece - both for his time and ours. -- Jean-Yves Naudet, Professor of Economics, Universite d'Aix-Marseilles III
Antonio Rosmini's Constitution Under Social Justice is a great book that extols the virtues of a liberty ordered to truth. This translation will bring Rosmini's thought to the attention of new audiences at precisely the right time. His insights into the role of property in ordering free societies are essential reading for theologians, economists, and political scientists today. -- James V. Schall, Professor of Government, Georgetown University
A very important text, The Constitution Under Social Justice takes us beyond today's sterile political labels, and returns political discourse to where it belongs - the language of natural law. Written in the 19th century, Rosmini's book provides those in the 21st century with the tools we need to think about freedom in the modern world in a coherent manner. -- Carlos Hoevel, Professor of Philosophy, Catholic University of Argentina
Antonio Rosmini is one of the great minds of 19th century Catholicism. His Constitution Under Social Justice represents the most mature expression of Rosmini's political and economic thought. This English translation is a must-read for anyone interested in the dialogue between the worlds of theology, philosophy, and economics. -- Robert A. Sirico, President, Acton Institute
