Summary
"[This book] provides an ideal starting point for students of philosophy and law. Setting it clearly against the historical background, [the author] ... leads readers into the heart of the philosophical questions that dominate philosophy of law today ... and [provides an] overview of the contending theories that have sought to resolve these problems ... The book is structured in three parts around the key issues and themes in philosophy of law: what is the law? : the major legal theories addressing the question of what we mean by law, including natural law, legal positivism and legal realism; the reach of the law : the various legal theories on the nature and extent of the law's authority, with regard to obligation and civil disobedience, rights, liberty and privacy; and criminal law : responsibility and mens rea, intention, recklessness and murder, legal defences, insanity and philosophies of punishment ... Revisions include a more detailed analysis of natural law, new chapters on common law and the development of positivism, a reassessment of the Austin-Hart dispute in the light of recent criticism of Hart, a new chapter on the natural law-positivist controversy over Nazi law and legality, and new chapters on criminal law, extending the analysis of the dispute over the viability of the defences of necessity and duress."--
