Overview

Book 2 deals with the Conjectural issue (probability, comparison, signs, presumptive proof, subsequent behavior, and confirmatory proof). Under the rubric Judicial issue the Absolute Juridical suit is examined along with the sources of the law (law of nature, statutory, common law, previous judgments, equity, and agreement).

Though humble in its approach, it delivers greatness.
