Mutual Expectations: A Conventionalist Theory of Law - Law and Philosophy Library 56 (Paperback)Govert A. den Hartogh (author)
- We can order this
This book takes a fresh look at the perennial problems of legal philosophy - the source of obligation to obey the law, the nature of authority, the relationship between law and morality, and the nature of legal argument - from the perspective of this conventionalist understanding of social rules. It argues that, since the resilience of such rules depends on cooperative dispositions, conventionalism, properly understood, does not imply positivism.
