  1. Do human rights exist before laws are made, or do laws create them Are law and morality even commensurable Dworkin argues that they are In a twist on the usual approach, he starts with law and works back toward moral theory in a series of essays Three of the topics he covers give examples of his thinking Legal Positivism Under the theory of legal positivism rights are thought to be purely a product of jurisprudence Positivists like this detachment from moral reasoning, which they don t believe s [...]



  2. Deep but conversational An extraordinarily ambitious book, Dworkin stands with some of the monuments of contemporary political theory like Rawls and Habermas.


  3. The book that is still making earthquakes inside legal positivism Specially relevant on these times of civil disobedience.


  4. Dworkin aims at a grandly ambitious apologia for moral liberalism in this book, trying to defend an enlightenment philosophy of human rights and common welfare against attack from the Left and Right Towards the Left, Dworkin argues against legal positivism, which says that laws are essentially arbitrary and political in nature, a matter of interest groups and power rather than justice Towards the Right, Dworkin makes a case for judicial discretion and the use of law to advance equality even at t [...]


  5. This book is surprisingly clear in its exposition The ideas are interesting, the attack against Hart s legal positivism is clear, and Dworkin s own positive position shines through at the end Caveat Dworkin believes that he is providing both an empirical and normative account of the jurisprudential process something he elaborates in the appendix of the 1978 edition of the book It would take someone with a way better understanding of legal history than I to be able to say whether or not his empir [...]


  6. it turns out that Philosophy of Law is really difficult Dworkin s a big name for the right reasons, but I don t buy this by the end Rights are just real fuzzy type things, if they are even really things Legal positivism and realism are much sober about the realities of law, even though Dworkin makes a convincing case sometimes Still, there s too much natural law type stuff in his account, often quite well hidden too.Bottom line is he throws a few curveballs that positivists and realists need to [...]


  7. Response to positivism Unlike Hart, Dworkin is not very clear and not always logical, but his point of view has definite merit Some of what he is saying makes a lot of sense, but it applicable to common law system of US and Britain than to the civil law Which system is better still open for debate.


  8. A wonderful book for people living in societies with little to none experience in personal rights, importance of law and relation between the state and the citizen.
