Editorial Reviews


"This is a superb collection of recent essays in Natural Law Theory. The essays are sensibly organized, balanced in approach, and sufficiently diverse in approach to reveal the inherent complexity and controversiality of this once-passé and now vital topic."--Ronald Moore, University of Washington

"This well-balanced collection provides a lucid and reliable compendium of the most important modern criticisms by and of natural law theorists in legal and moral philosophy. It is the best book of its kind."--James Gaffney, Loyola University

"This is an excellent collection of recent work in natural law theory....This is a most useful collection for advanced undergraduates and graduate/law students."--Anthony J. Lisska, Denison University

"[A] superb collection of original essays....For anyone who might still believe that natural law theory is merely a relic of bygone days...Professor George's book provides an indispensable antidote."--First Things

"George deserves congratulations for bringing together such an eminent group of scholars."--Times Literary Supplement

Format: Paperback
This collection of essays by prominent natural law philosophers is excellent; however, as a grad student in philosophy, I found this book to be a challenge. It assumes that the reader already has a good foundation in natural law.
