  2. Herman Dooyeweerd: Christian Philosopher of State and Civil Society.Jonathan Chaplin - 2010 - University of Notre Dame Press.
    The twentieth-century Dutch philosopher Herman Dooyeweerd left behind an impressive canon of philosophical works and has continued to influence a scholarly community in Europe and North America, which has extended, critiqued, and applied his thought in many academic fields. Jonathan Chaplin introduces Dooyeweerd for the first time to many English readers by critically expounding Dooyeweerd's social and political thought and by exhibiting its pertinence to contemporary civil society debates. Chaplin begins by contextualizing Dooyeweerd's thought, first in relation to present-day debates (...)

    ‘Public Justice’ as a Critical Political Norm.Jonathan Chaplin - 2007 - Philosophia Reformata 72 (2):130-150.
    ‘Public justice’ is one of the most widely-invoked of the many distinctive terms coined by Herman Dooyeweerd but, strangely, one of the least well analysed. Dooyeewerd holds that that the identity of the state is defined by a single, integrating and directing norm, the establishment of ‘public justice’. Elaborating the implications of this claim has occupied much neo-Calvinist political reflection and guided much political action inspired by that movement. Yet surprisingly little sustained theoretical reflection has been devoted in recent times (...)

    Gooyeweerd's Notion of Societal Structural Principles.Jonathan Chaplin - 1995 - Philosophia Reformata 60 (1):16-36.
    The notion of societal structural principles is the foundation stone of Dooyeweerd’s social philosophy, and of the political and legal philosophy grounded in it, yet it has so far received little detailed critical analysis or constructive reformulation among reformational scholars. The aim of this paper is the modest one of illustrating the kind of analysis still to be done if the notion is to be put to more constructive use within social theory. I shall say little about the epistemological or (...)

    Subsidiarity.Jonathan Chaplin - 1997 - Ethical Perspectives 4 (2):117-130.
    It has always been the fate of centrally important concepts in public debate to be used promiscuously. ‘Democracy’, for instance, has long been assigned multiple contested meanings; its meaning is univocal only in the minds of passionate advocates of a single political project seeking to monopolize usage of the term, whether Liberals or Leninists. Theorists tend to worry about this conceptual promiscuity more than practitioners, who, firing off loaded concepts in the heat of political battle, are impatient of reminders that, (...)

    Political Liberalism and Christian Political Theology: A Review of Two Works by Liberals That Can Enhance Prospects for Dialogue. [REVIEW]Jonathan Chaplin - 2018 - Studies in Christian Ethics 31 (3):281-295.
    This review article assesses the usefulness of two substantial recent books on religion by liberal political philosophers, Cécile Laborde and Aurélia Bardon, Religion in Liberal Political Philosophy, and Cécile Laborde, Liberalism’s Religion. It opens by situating these books against the landscape of UK-based work on the place of public religion in liberal democracy by both liberal political philosophers and Christian political theologians. Noting the relative paucity—by comparison with those from North America—of contributions on the theme from both quarters, it welcomes (...)

    Towards a Monotheistic Democratic Constitutionalism? Convergent Themes in Oliver O’Donovan, Sajjad Rizvi and Paul Heck.Jonathan Chaplin - 2016 - Studies in Christian Ethics 29 (2):169-176.
    This article responds to the papers by O’Donovan, Rizvi and Heck by identifying four convergent themes emerging from their accounts of Christian and Islamic political thought: the denial of salvific efficacy to the state; the claim that political authority is legitimated and limited by law; the attribution of a normative purpose to the state; and the ascription of a positive role for the people in the legitimation and scrutiny of political authority. The article poses the question whether this amounts to (...)

  14. Christianity and Civil Society: Catholic and Neo-Calvinist Perspectives.Stanley Carlson-Thies, Jonathan Chaplin, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Kenneth L. Grasso, Russell Hittinger, Timothy Sherratt & James W. Skillen - 2008 - Lexington Books.
    A work of contemporary Christian political thought, this volume addresses the crisis of modern democracy evident in the decline of the institutions of civil society and their theoretical justification. Drawing upon a rich store of social and political reflection found in the Catholic and Neo-Calvinist traditions, the essays mount a robust defense of the irreducible identity and value of the social institutions_family, neighborhood, church, civic association_that serve as the connective tissue of a political community.
