About this title

Synopsis:

Shows how two sets of ideas about law and authority emerged in the late-medieval period, one stressing the moral basis of law, the other advancing the view that laws are authoritative simply because they originate in the human will.

Review:

This book describes a fundamental tension in fifteenth-century English legal thought. Dr. Doe shows how two sets of ideas about law and authority emerged in the late-medieval period, one stressing the moral basis of law, the other advancing the view that laws are authoritative simply because they originate in the human will. This latter view becomes increasingly dominant as the century advances, and culminates in the modern notion that laws are valid and enforceable regardless of their moral quality. -- Book Description
