Anno: 2009
In his book published in 1951, Cotta showed that according to S. Augustine the external features of political institutions were not sufficient to grant their capacity to pursue an actual common good. In this way Cotta: a) drew away from ideological catholic thought which claimed to be able to outline the earthly features of a society totally inspired by christian values; b) showed the autonomy of augustinian thought from the later interpretation of S. Thomas which was inspired by the idea of natural law; c) offered an in depth analysis of the classical principle according to which it is impossible to draw a particular yet absolutely grounded conclusion from a universal principle; d) lastly, by claiming the presence of the transcendent in experience and through the critic to every kind of ideological dogmatism, he gave a lesson on the way in which a true lay political thought has to develop.
