How do we make sense of life? How should we treat others? How should we reasonably be expected to be treated by others? When human life is at stake, are there reasonable principles we can rely on to guide our actions? How should our laws be framed to protect human life? What kind of society should be built?

Many people rely on their religious beliefs to answer these questions. But not everyone accepts the same religious premises or recognizes the same spiritual authorities. Are there "public arguments"-reasons that can be given that do not presuppose agreement on religious grounds or common religious commitments-that can guide our thoughts and actions, as well as our laws and public policies?

In Ten Universal Principles: A Brief Philosophy of the Life Issues, Jesuit Father Robert Spitzer sets out, in a brief, yet highly-readable and lucid style, ten basic principles that must govern the reasonable person's thinking and acting about life issues. A highly-regarded philosopher, Father Spitzer provides an intelligent outline for thinking and talking about human life. This book is a powerful tool for persuasively articulating and effectively inculturating a prolife philosophy.

"Ten Universal Principles is a true philosopher's gift to all who sincerely wish to live wisely and well."
- Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University

"Lucid, limpid, logical. Fr. Spitzer's elegant and readable book about the life issues provides the tools for knowledge, and his view of his audience is rooted in his vision of man as a being who wants to know."
- J. Budziszewski, University of Texas, Author, What We Can't Not Know: A Guide
