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

22 editions published between 1984 and 1997 in English and held by 1,279 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.

Risks and wrongs by Jules L Coleman( Book )

33 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This classic book by one of America's pre-eminent legal theorists is concerned with the conflict between the goals of justice and economic efficiency in the allocation of risk, especially risk pertaining to safety. The author approaches his subject from the premise that the market is central to liberal political, moral, and legal theory. In the first part of the book, he rejects traditional rational choice liberalism in favour of the view that the market operates as a rational way of fostering stable relationships and institutions within communities of individuals with broadly divergent conceptions of the good. However, markets are needed most where they are most difficult to create and sustain, and one way to understand contract law in liberal legal theory, according to Professor Coleman, is as an institution designed to reduce uncertainty and thereby make markets possible."
Philosophy of law by Joel Feinberg( Book )

20 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The practice of principle : in defence of a pragmatist approach to legal theory by Jules L Coleman( Book )

30 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 458 WorldCat member 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 & lsquo;descriptive jurisprudence & rsquo

Rational commitment and social justice : essays for Gregory Kavka( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member 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
