Overview

The aim of this book is to explore what it means to live a life under the law. Does a life of law preclude love and does a life of love preclude law? Part of the theme of the book is that social questions also raise individual moral and ethical questions; that to live lawfully implies both a question of how I should live in my relations with my fellows and how society should be organised. These questions must be looked at together. The book explores these questions and in looking at the articulation of law and love touches upon debates in personal morality, aesthetics, epistemology, social and political organisation, institutional design and the form and substance of law. It raises questions that are of interest to students and those working in law, theology, and social and political theory.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"He focuses on what it is like to live lawfully … . The uses of illustrations and concrete situations is something which will make the work attractive to students … . The book will work best as a basis for discussion and debate in seminars. The use of stories will make it more usable by common-law trained students … . Overall, this is a challenging but very readable book." (John Bell, Res Publica, Vol. 10, 2004)
