The Philosophy of Law: Classic and Contemporary Readings with Commentary
UVA Law Faculty Affiliations
An anthology that gathers classic texts, contemporary theoretical innovations, and well-known recent court cases. The readings are arranged within eight thematic chapters: what is law?; legal reasoning; the moral force of law; the structure and content of rights; justice and equality; punishment; responsibility; and legal procedure and evidence. Extensive introductions make the readings accessible to undergraduates in philosophy and political science and to law students.
