Politics, Church and the Common Good

Andrew Bradstock, Hilary Russell

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearch

Abstract

This chapter examines what is meant by 'the Common Good'. It attempts a definition of the term, explores its secular and religious origins (including within the Judaeo-Christian scriptures), and examines its relationship with 'the state', 'the 'market', 'politics' and other tenets of Catholic Social Teaching such as 'subsidiarity'. By reference to the work of Bishop David Sheppard and Archbishop Derek Worlock in Liverpool in the 1970s, 80s and 90s, it also reflects on what the Common Good looks like 'in practice'.
