Professor Budziszewski earned his doctorate from Yale University in 1981, and specializes in the relations among ethical theory, political theory, and Christian theology. The focus of his current research is natural law and moral self deception. His books include The Resurrection of Nature: Political Theory and the Human Character (Cornell, 1986), The Nearest Coast of Darkness: A Vindication of the Politics of Virtues (Cornell, 1988), True Tolerance: Liberalism and the Necessity of Judgment (Transaction, 1992), Written on the Heart: The Case for Natural Law (InterVarsity, 1997), The Revenge of Conscience: Politics and the Fall of Man (Spence, 1999), and What We Can't Not Know: A Guide (Spence, 2003). A good representation of his shorter work is "The Revenge of Conscience" (First Things 84, [June/July 1998], pp. 21-27).

COMMENT: Having done a fair amount of study of the topic, his lecture "Playing Dumb" is one of the best explications of the subject I've encountered. I've listened to it several times, and pick up a new facet every time. I highly recommend it!
