Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
The essays in this volume--written by academic lawyers as well as legal and moral philosophers--address some of the most intriguing questions raised by natural law theory and its implications for law, morality, and public policy. Some of the essays explore the implications that natural law theory has for jurisprudence, asking what natural law suggests about the use of legal devices such as constitutions and precedents. Other essays examine the connections between natural law and natural rights.

This argument assumes that microevolution resolves macroevolution, an issue settled by paradigmatics, not science. What of natural right if we accept punctuated equilibrium as a macroevolutionary version of the theory. How about the right to revolution by punctuated equilibrial right? Imagine making that argument in front of the judge. If that's true, then what grounds does the judge have to favor Darwin's theory, Darwinian natural right? What lawyer could produce smoking gun evidence for natural selection? Back to the drawing board here.
