The philosophy of law : an introduction to jurisprudence by Jeffrie G Murphy( Book )

26 editions published between 1984 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this revised edition, two distinguished philosophers have extended and strengthened the most authoritative text available on the philosophy of law and jurisprudence. While retaining their comprehensive coverage of classical and modern theory, Murphy and Coleman have added new discussions of the Critical Legal Studies movement and feminist jurisprudence, and they have strengthened their treatment of natural law theory, criminalization, and the law of torts. The chapter on law and economics remains the best short introduction to that difficult, controversial, and influential topic. Students wi

Forgiveness and mercy by Jeffrie G Murphy( Book )

31 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the degree to which certain moral and legal doctrines are rooted in specific passions that are then institutionalised in the form of criminal law. A philosophical analysis is developed of the following questions: when, if ever, should hatred be overcome by sympathy or compassion? What are forgiveness and mercy and to what degree do they require - both conceptually and morally - the overcoming of certain passions and the motivation by other passions? If forgiveness and mercy indeed are moral virtues, what role, if any, should they play in the law?

Publisher's description: Psychologist Sharon Lamb and philosopher Jeffrie Murphy argue that forgiveness has been accepted as a therapeutic strategy without serious, critical examination.

When is forgiveness in fact harmful?

Character, liberty, and law : Kantian essays in theory and practice by Jeffrie G Murphy( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jeffrie G. Murphy's third collection of essays further pursues the topics of punishment and retribution that were explored in his two previous collections: Retribution, Justice and Therapy and Retribution Reconsidered. Murphy now explores these topics in the light of reflections on issues that are normally associated with religion: forgiveness, mercy, and repentance. He also explores the general issue of theory and practice and discusses a variety of topics in applied ethics, e.g. freedom of artistic expression, the morality of gambling, and the value of forgiveness in psychological counseling."--Jacket
