Natural Law: An Introduction to Legal Philosophy (Library of Conservative Thought)

This is the classic study of the history and continuing philosophical valuesof the law of nature. D’Entrves discerned three distinct sources that havecontributed to the development of natural law: Roman law teachings, Christian beliefs regarding law, and egalitarian and revolutionary theoriesof the Enlightenment. Now regarded as a classic work, Natural Law has exercised considerable infl uence over the course of Anglo-American legal theory in the past forty years. The statements of Clarence Thomas during his 1991 Senate confi rmation hearings show that the law of nature still holds powerful appeal in defining judicial rules.
