The philosophy of law : an introduction to jurisprudence by Jeffrie G Murphy ( Book )
12 editions published between 1984 and 1997 in English and held by 1,044 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.
Markets, morals, and the law by Jules L Coleman ( Book )
21 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and held by 686 libraries worldwide
This book shows how traditional problems of philosophy can be understood more clearly when considered in terms of law, economics, and political science. The discussion is divided into four sections. The first offers a new version of legal positivism and an original theory of legal rights. The second critically evaluates the economic approach to law, while the third considers the relationship of justice to liability for unintentional harms and to the practice of settling disputes rather than fully litigating them. Finally, the book explores formal social choice in democratic theory, the relationship between market behaviour and voting, and the view that morality itself, like law, is a solution of the problem of market failure.

The practice of principle : in defence of a pragmatist approach to legal theory by Jules L Coleman ( Book )
15 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 397 libraries worldwide
This book expands the argument introduced in the Clarendon Lectures in Law presented at Oxford University in the fall of 1998. It introduces and attempts to sustain two different kinds of arguments; the aim is not only to defend a range of views of substantive issues in legal theory, but also to vindicate by example a certain methodological approach to such issues an approach whose fundamental commitments are those of philosophical pragmatism. The book advances three main theses. Part I defends the view that the core of tort law is best understood as embodying the principle of corrective justice. Part II defends a version of inclusive legal positivism. Part III defends what has been called ‘descriptive jurisprudence’.

Rational commitment and social justice : essays for Gregory Kavka ( Book )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 333 libraries worldwide
Gregory S. Kavka (1947-94) was a prominent and influential figure in contemporary moral and political philosophy. The new essays in this volume are concerned with fundamental issues of rational commitment and social justice to which Kavka devoted his work as a philosopher. The essays take Kavka's work as a point of departure and seek to advance the respective debates. The topics include the relationship between intention and moral action (as part of which Kavka's famous "toxin puzzle" is a focus of discussion), the nature of deterrence, the rationality of morals, contractarian ethics, and the contemporary relevance of Hobbes' political thought. Incorporating important new philosophical statements of problems and fresh contributions to the ongoing debate about rational intention this volume will interest not only philosophers but also political scientists and economists.
