Out of Print This is a collection of essays on themes of legal philosophy which may all be described as being generated or affected by Hart's work. It includes contributions by the most prominent scholars in Hart-related legal philosophy today.
The book is not meant to be a systematic introduction into Hart's own work. Rather it pays Hart the tribute of the teacher and mentor that he has been to this field by reflecting the variety of his interests, the breadth of his contribution, and the immense, stimulating efforts of his work and his personality.
In a nutshell, the book shows how indispensable Hart's work is in contemporary legal philosophy, how on many points his vision is still the "ruling" one, and how on others he has helped us formulate better, richer and more sophisticated positions.
The book is based on a conference held in Jerusalem in March 1984. It is thus structured by papers and comments. It covers topics in legal theory, responsibility, and enforcement of morals.
