Editorial Reviews


"...an interesting and important set of historical studies, written clearly and straightforwardly, resting on massive scholarship, and arguing for some challenging theses about matters that are still of lively theoretical interest." J.B. Schneewind, The Johns Hopkins University

"Natural Law and Moral Philosophy is an important canvass of a cultue at work. It is a study not simply of the rich linguistic matrix that constituted and supported the culture, but also of the publications, translations, and institutions that forged the moral personality for two centuries in Protestant Europe and North America." Martha K. Zebrowski, American Political Science Review

"Natural Law and Moral Philosophy is a singularly valuable addition to the library of anyone interested in the history of legal and political theory." Ronald Hamowy, Eighteenth Century Scotland

Book Description

Providing the most comprehensive guide to modern natural law theory available, this major contribution to the history of philosophy sets out the full background to liberal ideas of rights and contractarianism, and offers an extensive study of the Scottish Enlightenment.

Astute, but painfully dull. If you don't absolutely have to read it, you may struggle to make it happen. I believe that those who force themselves through the material will be rewarded. I didn't get far myself, however.
