What actually is the Common Good? In conversation with Anna Rowlands

What actually is the Common Good? In conversation with Anna Rowlands

Nick Spencer speaks to Anna Rowlands about what the Common Good means and what it offers a society like ours. 14/12/2021

The Common Good is a remarkably popular phrase, used widely by the left and the right, the religious and the secular. But does it actually mean anything? Is it so elastic as to have no real content?

In this episode, Nick Spencer talks to Anna Rowlands about her new book Towards a Politics of Communion, about what the Common Good means and what it offers a society like ours.
