Readings in the Philosophy of Law by John Arthur
This anthology of classical and contemporary philosophical essays and legal cases focuses on legal philosophy as its own subject-rather than as merely a topic in applied ethics or an aspect of social/political philosophy. The essays within this reader focus on the different aspects and areas of law and the particular philosophical issues that they raises. The book requires students to think through actual debates--many of them still currently in the courts.
