The central question in legal philosophy is the relationship between law and morality. The legal systems of many countries around the world have been influenced by the principles of the Enlightenment: freedom, equality and fraternity. The position is similar in relation to the accompanying state ideal of the democratic constitutional state as well as the notion of a welfare state. The foundation of these principles lies in the ideal of individual autonomy. The law must in this view guarantee a social order which secures the equal freedom of all. This freedom is moreover fundamental because in modern pluralistic societies a great diversity of views exist concerning the appropriate way of life. This freedom ideal is however also strongly contested. In Law, Order and Freedom, a historical overview is given pertaining to the question of the extent to which the modern Enlightenment values can serve as the universal foundation of law and society.

From the Back Cover:

Law, Order and Freedom gives an account of the history of Western legal and political philosophy, starting with the pre-Socratics and ending with Rawls. It examines in detail the development of the Enlightenment values of freedom and equality, the foremost principles of many present-day constitutions. The underlying ideal of individual autonomy, characteristic of modern times, has nevertheless been contested throughout its history. Against the background of this historical development, Law, Order and Freedom enquires further whether the modern Enlightenment values can serve as a foundation for law and society in the modern era where a great diversity of worldviews exists.

            Law, Order and Freedom will be an invaluable resource for those with an interest in legal and political philosophy.
