Editorial Reviews


"Written by a veritable Who's Who of internationally renowned scholars in the field, this volume is bound to be of tremendous use to anyone seeking expert guidance on the wide variety of topics covered within its pages.  A truly excellent collection." –Russ Shafer-Landau, University of Wisconsin, Madison

"This is an exciting volume of new pieces in the philosophy of law.  I teach in this area even though it is not a specialty of mine.  For my purposes, Marmor has chosen an ideal set of important and active topics, along with top authors drawn from across legal and political philosophy.  I'm thrilled to have these available both for my own studies and for use in my courses."David Estlund, Brown University

"This is a first-class collection: it offers original works from many of the best people now writing in philosophy of law; I am very impressed by the scope of topics covered and the quality of the contributions."-Brian H. Bix, University of Minnesota

"This volume contains a star-studded cast of contributors and provides a treasure trove for those who teach philosophy of law." James W. Nickel, University of Miami

"The aim of the book is to provide, in our opinion, thoughtful, scholarly, precisely analytical, yet clearly expressed examinations of an amazingly wide range of jurisprudential issues which lie within the purview of ‘philosophy of law’." – Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, Richmond Green Chambers

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

There are 14 titles in the much acclaimed `Routledge Philosophy Companions' series, and `The Routledge Companion to Philosophy Of Law' is the latest. Certainly this is the title that will confer maximum interest and benefit to students of law and for that matter, experienced practitioners as well.

Under the able editorship of Professor Andrei Marmor of the University of Southern California, the book presents a compendium of leaned articles and essays by no less than 39 academics from a who's who of distinguished universities worldwide, from, for example, the University of California at Berkeley, to Oxford and Cambridge.

The aim of the book is to provide, in our opinion, thoughtful, scholarly, precisely analytical, yet clearly expressed examinations of an amazingly wide range of jurisprudential issues which lie within the purview of `philosophy of law'. The publishers assure us that the content is entirely new and written specifically for newcomers to the field. For undergraduate and graduate students in law and/or related fields, this book is a boon.

The essays are grouped logically under six categories which include: Theories about the Nature of Law... Legal Reasoning... Theories of Legal Areas... Law as a Coercive Order... Moral Obligations to Law... and Rights and Equality.

Under the latter heading there is much thought provoking commentary on some very topical issues relating to freedom of speech, including equality, rights and privacy.

`Is pornography speech?' is one of the questions asked, or is it an act?
