Natural Law and Justice
is an extraordinarily wideranging and penetrating analysis of the relationships among positivism, natural law, and contemporary discussions of equality, liberty; community, and free will. Current explorations of positivism and natural law tend to be narrow and sterile; Weinreb's discussion places them in a much larger historical and theoretical context. A particular strength of the book is its range and historical sweep. It greatly deepens understanding of the many topics with which it deals... Most important, Natural Law and Justice
gets to the foundations of contemporary discussion of both liberalism and communitarianism and natural law and positivism. For this reason, the book should be highly illuminating to all those interested in political theory, philosophy, and law. This is a remarkable achievement. (Cass R. Sunstein The University of Chicago
A fine contribution to legal philosophical literature... This volume is an excellent contribution to the literature that is concerned with transcending the positivists' wall between law and justice. (J. Roland Pennock Swarthmore College
