Pittsburgh Post Gazette reviews Professor Ledwitz's new book
Adrian Van Kaam Endowed Chair in Scholarly Excellence and Professor of Law Bruce Ledewitz's recently authored book The Universe Is on Our Side was reviewed by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. The article starts by saying, "fraught times demand radical inquiry" and goes on to nicely assess Ledewitz's book and its correlation to the current poltical climate.
The Universe Is on Our Side, published by Oxford University Press, is a combination of religion and politics. Ledewitz argues there is a deep societal breakdown in America that cannot be remedied by an election. He points to the divisions that make it impossible to politely converse about politics and examines the insufficiency of the usual explanations as to why this is happening.
The rewiew furthers this thought, asking, "is a public debate about the nature of the universe plausible to hope for? Readers needn't have faith the approach will work to find it a useful angle from which to view our predicament."
