John Rawls ; edited by Thomas Nagel.

About the Book

Rawls' senior thesis, in which he defines faith as community with God and sin as breaking with the community by expressing ego. Includes a pair of preliminary essays and brief later reflection by Rawls backtracking on the more organizational parts of his earlier constructs.

First Sentence
