Norm and nature : the movements of legal thought by Roger A Shiner( Book )

24 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work deals with the traditional conflict in legal philosophy between positivistic and anti-positivistic theories of law. It examines the conflict with respect to seven central issues in legal philosophy and argues that the true nature of law is revealed, not obscured, by this situation
Freedom of commercial expression by Roger A Shiner( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Roger Shiner examines critically the history of, and reasoning behind, the extension of the principles of freedom of expression to commercial expression. He examines the institutional history of freedom of commercial expression as a constitutional doctrine, and argues that history is one of ad hoc, rather than logical, development. In examining the arguments used in support of freedom of commercial expression, he shows that even from within the borders of liberal democratic theory, constitutional protection for commercial expression is not philosophically justified. Commercial corporations cannot possess an original autonomy right to free expression. Moreover, the claim that there is a hearers' right to receive commercial expression which advertisers may borrow is invalid. Freedom of commercial expression does not fit the best available models for hearers' rights. Regulation of commercial expression is not paternalistic. The free flow of commercial information is not automatically a good, and, in any case, commercial expression rarely in fact involves information."--Jacket

The law and the right : a reappraisal of the reality that ought to be by Enrico Pattaro( )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Treatise of Legal Philosophy and General Jurisprudence is the first-ever multivolume treatment of the issues in legal philosophy and general jurisprudence, from both a theoretical and a historical perspective. The work is aimed at jurists as well as legal and practical philosophers. Edited by the renowned theorist Enrico Pattaro and his team, this book is a classical reference work that would be of great interest to legal and practical philosophers as well as to jurists and legal scholar at all levels. The work is divided The theoretical part (published in 2005), consisting of five volumes, covers the main topics of the contemporary debate; the historical part, consisting of six volumes (Volumes 6-8 published in 2007; Volumes 9 and 10, published in 2009; Volume 11 published in 2011 and volume 12 forthcoming in 2012/2013), accounts for the development of legal thought from ancient Greek times through the twentieth century. The entire set will be completed with an index. Volume 1: The Law and the Right, a Reappraisal of the Reality that ought to be by Enrico Pattaro This work brings out and recovers the normative dimension of law, called "the reality that ought to be", placing within this reality the idea of what is right. Part I reconstructs the current as well as the traditional civil-law conception of the reality that ought to be and raises some critical theoretical issues. Part II introduces some basic concepts on language and behaviour and presents a conception of norms as beliefs. Part III aims to find explanations for the idea of a reality that ought to be. Part IV consists of inquiries focussed on Homeric epic, the natural-law school, and the normativistic view of positive law.

A treatise of legal philosophy and general jurisprudence. 1600-1900 by Enrico Pattaro( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

TO VOLUMES 9 AND 10 OF THE TREATISE I am happy to present here the third batch of volumes for the Treatise project: This is the batch consisting of Volumes 9 and 10, namely, A History of the P- losophy of Law in the Civil Law World, 1600-1900, edited by Damiano Canale, Paolo Grossi, and Hasso Hofmann, and The Philosophers' Philosophy of Law from the Seventeenth Century to Our Days, by Patrick Riley. Three v- umes will follow: Two are devoted to the philosophy of law in the 20th c- tury, and the third one will be the index for the entire Treatise, which will 1 therefore ultimately comprise thirteen volumes. This Volume 9 runs parallel to Volume 8, A History of the Philosophy of Law in the Common Law World, 1600-1900, by Michael Lobban, published in 2007. Volume 10, for its part, takes up where Volume 6 left off: which appeared under the title A History of the Philosophy of Law from the Ancient Greeks to the Scholastics (edited by Fred Miller Jr. in association with Carrie-Ann Biondi, likewise published in 2007), and which is mainly a history of the p- losophers' philosophy of law (let us refer to this philosophy as A)
