Dr. Peter Nosco has recently returned from his sabbatical over the last year in Japan and has published a new book this summer via Cambridge University Press. The book, co-edited with Dr. Simone Chambers of the University of Toronto, is titled Dissent on Core Beliefs: Religious and Secular Perspectives and compares the ways in which nine ethical and religious traditions have dealt with intramural dissent. The volume considers the traditions of Confucianism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, liberalism, Marxism, South Asian religions, and natural law. The collection begins a dialogue on the common challenges facing all traditions: how to maintain cohesion and core values in the face of pluralism, and how to do this in a way that is consistent with the internal ethical principles of the traditions.
