Bohemian-born Bolzano (1781-1848) was known for his work in logic, the foundations of mathematics, and the philosophy of science and later, as a religious scholar in Prague, as a determined critic of abuses in church and state. Here is a representative selection of his works on ethical and political theory, along with a small sampling of his religious ethics. The topics include correct conduct toward enemies of enlightenment, the right of clergy to obtain their livelihood from persons not of their faith, natural morality, and the best state.
