The writer of this essay examines the different philosophers in history including Aristotle, Descartes and Augustine and how their views and theories impact morality in society today. The paper also discusses society's dire need for a new morality that believes justice should be blind and lawyers not greedy, where glass ceilings disappear and affirmative action laws are no longer necessary.

From the Paper:

"Perhaps, until Karl Marx, philosophers with ideas used God and religion to either provide doubts or explain rational phenomena of the Human mind- including being, doubt, wisdom, and the ability to adapt. Given this thesis, one can search for some sort of compatibility between Augustine and Descartes- both believing that God is the ultimate truth, and that the doubts that seem to occur in one's life-time are human traits. If Augustine searches for truth and finds it in the Judeo-Christian concept then Descartes searches for reality, which, he claims in his Meditation, can only be found if one refuses to doubt the existence of God."
