Editorial Reviews


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)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lloyd Weinreb poses and answers the main and crucial questions anyone will formulate after having read Kelsen's Pure Theory of Law. Among them, I would underline what are the options one could meet in the Natural Law, if it is to make serious use of the Laws of the State.

I most liked the extent to which Natural Law and Justice covers the subject, be it along the historical dimension and along the large diversity of fields and lines of thinking about Justice, liberty, morality, equality, desert and responsibility. Sincerelly I would feel better if Weinreb included more examples for some conclusions he reached, so that I could check my understanding of his interesting and useful statements.

In the whole, Lloyd L. Weinreb's Natural Law and Justice met my expectations: I've just began to read it again, to study its content point by point in depth.

I think Natural Law and Justice must be read by judges, lawyers, administrators and citizens whose life and affairs are submitted to the laws of the State, that is: every conscious and responsible individual.
