Editorial Reviews


The theory of law and practical reason offered in MacCormick's latest book constitutes an insightful approach through which to tackle some of the more debated issues in jurisprudence and practical philosophy today. Critical reflection on MacCormick's theory, thus, may indeed by the way to work toward an insightful treatment of reason applied to practical disputes. Stefano Bertea, Journal of Law and Society, Volume 23, No.3, 2009 The book is clearly written in MacCormick's usual lucid and lively style avoiding technicalities, and a pleasure to read. Anyone having heard him lecture will sense his voice and be enlightened to think on the use of practical reason...MacCormick's account is a rewarding read and his message should be taken seriously by anyone interested in law and morality Jes Bjarup, Natural Law, Practical Reason and Autonomous Persons, Archiv Fuer Rechts Und Sozialphilosophie 95.3 ...deserves a wider reading and could change the picture of legal positivism nowadays. It could be the case not only because of the valuable new insight into the old problems invoked in philosophical thoughts achieved by means of dialogue with the contemporary context of legal theory, but also because of the deepness, reflective and proactively original insight presented in MacComick's last book. I strongly recommend this book to every lawyer Lidia Rodak, Silesian Journal of Legal Studies
