Synopsis

In this wide-ranging investigation of many prominent issues in contemporary legal, political, and moral philosophy, Matthew Kramer combines critiques with theorizing as he examines the writings of numerous major theorists (including Ronald Dworkin, H.L.A. Hart, Alan Gewirth, Ronald Coase and Richard Posner). Among the many topics covered by Kramer's essays are the relative merits of legal positivism and natural law theory, the appropriate understanding of justice, the role of consequences in moral decision making, and the ultimate foundations of moral judgements. This work is intended for use in departments of philosophy (courses in legal philosophy, political philosophy, moral philosophy and epistemology), law and politics.
