Comparison Seems to Differentiate,
This review is from: Canon Law: A Comparative Study with Anglo-American Legal Theory (Hardcover)
From what I have read this book seems to be about comparing and differentiating the two different types of law. It's about time. The whole premise of the Natural Law cohort seems to be that the premises are somehow the same by way of some deep Thomistic subtratum. Still, "canon law exhibits trust in ecclesiastical authority to direct the use of the church property." and civil law has a duty to the larger community. What a fine summary of the incommensurate nature of natural Law and that which from the Enlightenment governs our society. This sounds like a step in the right direction.
