With over sixty cases as support, Classic Readings and Cases in the Philosophy of Law presents the philosophy of law as a perpetual series of debates with overlapping lines and cross connections. Exploring the relation of law to morality, liberty, disobedience, and punishment, this book delves into many social and political issues of pressing importance in contemporary society. The extensive anthology of cases covers the mundane to the grandest of constitutional issues, including controversial topics like ownership of genetic material, capital punishment, and gay rights. With its brief introductions to readings and cases and extensive study questions, this book encourages readers to think critically and philosophically.
