Ronald Dworkin’s posthumously published book, Religion Without God, has two theses. One of these, neutrality toward all conceptions of the good, is familiar from his earlier work, has been enormously influential, and is deeply mistaken. The other, about the common ground that unites religious and nonreligious people, is new, and although it may not attract a large following, it is correct and enormously important.
