Overview

The Moral Limits of Law: Obedience, Respect, and Legitimacy by Ruth C. a. Higgins

The Moral Limits of Law analyses the related debates concerning the moral obligation to obey the law, conscientious citizenship, and state legitimacy. Incorporating a comprehensive critical analysis of the methodology and substance of these debates in legal, political, and moral philosophy, it proposes an original theory of duty grounded in respect for persons, which accommodates the contemporary social tension between local and global obligations.
