This volume features essays by leading contemporary natural law theorists and their critics. Readers should gain a clear sense of the state of the debate on such issues as the moral basis of legal obligation, the relationship between law and morality, and the role of moral enquiry and judgement in the interpretation of legal texts. In his introduction, Robert George provides a useful commentary on each essay.
