Ronald Dworkin by Stephen Guest ( )
33 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a lucid and comprehensive introduction to, and critical assessment of, Ronald Dworkin's seminal contributions to legal and political philosophy. His theories have a complexity, originality, and moral power that have excited a wide range of academic and political thinkers, and even those who disagree with him acknowledge that his ideas must be confronted and given serious consideration. His enormous output of books and papers and his formidable profusion of lectures and seminars throughout the world, in addition to his teaching duties at Oxford and New York University, have made him a giant figure in contemporary thought." "In short, Dworkin's theory of law is that the nature of legal argument lies in the best moral interpretation of existing social practices. His theory of justice is that all political judgments ought to rest ultimately upon the injunction that people are equal as human beings, irrespective of the circumstances in which they are born." "Dworkin does not fit into an orthodox category. His theory of law is radical in that it sees legal argument primarily about rights yet conservative in seeing it as constrained by history. He is libertarian both in valuing ambition and in asserting a right to pornography, yet socialist in believing that no person has a right to a greater share of resources than anyone else. In particular, he advocates a system that would tax people on the resources they accumulate solely through their talent alone." "Because Dworkin writes for a number of audiences--sometimes the general public, sometimes academic lawyers, sometimes philosophers and economists--it is often difficult to identify the different strands of his thought. The book aims to make his theories clear and accessible and to give an overall picture of his thinking that is sympathetic yet rigorously argued." "This is the sixth book in the series Jurists: Profiles in Legal Theory." --Book Jacket

Interpretacion, "Ajuste" e igualdad directa by Stephen Guest ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
El presente artículo trata de las ideas de interpretación e integridad según Dworkin, al tiempo que considera erróneo el positivismo jurídico y sostiene la existencia de la objetividad moral y la jurídica. Así mismo, plantea que la idea de "tomar algo como propio" es esencial para la idea de interpretación, y concluye afirmando que la interpretación en el derecho, como en la democracia, se basa en lo que la gente realmente cree. De ahí se deduce que considerar el proceso de evaluación de las práctica jurídicas un asunto de "interpretación constructiva" resulte engañoso, ya que lo más llamativo de la teoría de la interpretación de Dworkin reside simplemente en que ofrece una crítica moral (sólida) de las prácticas existentes en relación con una concepción muy abstracta de la igualdad. Esta conclusión se confirma con la distinción que Dworkin establece entre los argumentos de ajuste y "sustancia" en el razonamiento jurídico, pues está claro que los argumentos de ajuste son sólo argumento
