The always popular What Are They Saying About series introduces readers to the current debate concerning the two predominant Roman Catholic ethical methods that have emerged since Vatican II. The two theories investigated are both grounded in the Catholic natural law tradition and are designated as the Basic Goods Theory (BGT), also known as the "New Natural Law Theory, " and revisionism.
