Abstract

This article examines recent use of the key phrase “common good” in Catholic Social Teaching as well as the Anglican tradition. It explores who first developed the term, and looks at the evidence for Anglican use of it before such language became widespread among Catholics. Use of the “common good” by Henry Scott Holland and William Temple is surveyed. It is argued that first Thomas Hill Green, and secondly Jacques Maritain, are the real architects of modern use of “common good”.

KeywordsCommon good; Anglican; Thomas Hill Green; Henry Scott Holland; William Temple; Rerum Novarum; Jacques Maritain
