This chapter surveys the efforts of three contemporary Catholic theorists to recover a deeper appreciation for the natural law: Martin Rhonheimer, Servais Pinckaers, and Graham McAleer. Whereas Rhonheimer suggests that human practical reason humanizes the natural inclinations, thereby constituting the natural law, Pinckaers and McAleer give a stronger place to created receptivity and body-soul unity.

Keywords:   Martin Rhonheimer, Servais Pinckaers, Graham McAleer, practical reason, nominalism, nature and reason, participation, freedom
