The second edition of Readings in the Philosophy of Law is a concise anthology of key arguments in the philosophy of law, organized around the ideas of law and legal reasoning, limits on individual liberty, responsibility, and international law. Selections new to this edition update the anthology while continuing to present legal theory as a set of closely intertwined arguments. Critical Race Theory is addressed, as are challenges to legal theory posed by the emergence of the European Union.

The readings provide superb coverage of both classic and contemporary views, and they are edited only lightly to allow readers to grapple with arguments in their original form. Culver’s clear, accessible introductions discuss key terms, claims, issues, connections and points of conflict in each section. Culver takes particular care to place arguments in their historical and social context, with analogies and examples emphasizing the continuing relevance of historical and contemporary arguments.

A third edition of this text is forthcoming in early 2017.

About the Author:

Keith C. Culver is associate professor of philosophy and Director of the Centre for Social Innovation Research at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton.

Review:

“This is an important collection for students and teachers seeking a sophisticated survey of the major traditions and topics in the philosophy of law.” ― Emilios Christodoulidis, University of Glasgow

“The second edition of Readings in the Philosophy of Law displays a fine balance between classic and contemporary readings, covering a broad range of topics. Each section begins with a well-informed, easy-to-read introduction, and ends with a very useful list of study questions and further readings. These should be of immense value to students and instructors alike. In short, Readings in the Philosophy of Law is a well-crafted, authoritative text, of ideal length and modest cost. Highly recommended.” ― Wil Waluchow, McMaster University

Readings in the Philosophy of Law, second edition, is a very well-conceived text that permits students to engage challenging material in a stimulating fashion. It should prove valuable to teachers and students in a variety of disciplines.” ― Colin McLeod, University of Victoria

“This is an excellent introduction to philosophy of law. The extracts are up-to-date, very wisely chosen, and long enough to be interesting, challenging, and valuable. The commentary is excellently clear and will be helpful to the beginning student. The commentary also shows the student why philosophy of law is important and interesting, and how, like all philosophy, it proceeds by dialogue. The commentary and the study questions serve to focus the mind on the key issues, and to make the student think about the soundness of the arguments on which the views are based, and, even more importantly, about which of them are true and in what ways they are true. Keith Culver is to be congratulated.” ― Anthony Lesser, University of Manchester
