This was Pufendorf's first work, published in 1660. Its appearance effectively inaugurated the modern natural-law movement in the German-speaking world. The work also established Pufendorf as a key figure and laid the foundations for his major works, which were to sweep across Europe and North America. Pufendorf rejected the concept of natural rights as liberties and the suggestion that political government is justified by its protection of such rights, arguing instead for a principled limit to the state's role in human life.

This collection of essays by scholars of the law and literature movement explores the place of the passions in English law of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. While some of the essays elucidate the forces of emotion in legal texts, others consider the representation of impassioned jurisprudence in literary texts. Together these essays provide insight into the foundations of modern juridical thought.

Rather amazingly, James Madison foresaw many of the problems we face in America today. He foresaw our modern obsession with individual rights, the dangers of judicial activism, the problems of a war presidency, and the economic difficulties that can bring a nation to ruin. Most importantly, as America's preeminent political visionary, he also saw how these problems can be solved.

H. L. A. Hart's The Concept of Law is without question the most important work of legal philosophy written this century; no other study has made such an important contribution to the study of jurisprudence and legal philosophy. Since it was first published in 1961 its elegant language and balanced arguments have inspired generations of students to address the wider problems associated with the study of law. In this long awaited new edition Hart presents a postscript in which he re-examines the foundations of his philosophy of law, with special attention to Professor Dworkin's criticism of it. With dispassionate lucidity he shows how much of the criticism stems from misunderstanding and confusion of thought. The postscript provides a clarification and a restatement of the fundamental tenets of his position. This thought-provoking new edition will re-open a wide range of debates and will be welcomed by all those with an interest in legal philosophy and jurisprudence.

Christian Thomasius’s natural jurisprudence is essential to understanding the origins of the Enlightenment in Germany, where his importance was comparable to that of John Locke’s in England. First published in 1688, Thomasius’s Institutionum jurisprudentiae divinae (Institutes of Divine Jurisprudence) attempted to draw a clear distinction between natural and revealed law and to emphasize that human reason was able to know the precepts of natural law without the aid of Scripture. Thomasius also argued that his orthodox Lutheran opponents had failed to understand this distinction and thereby had confused reason and Scripture. In addition to the Institutes of Divine Jurisprudence, this volume contains significant selections from his Fundamenta juris naturae et gentium (Foundations of the Law of Nature and Nations), published in 1705. In Foundations Thomasius significantly revised the theory he had put forward in the Institutes, and much of the Foundations therefore is a paragraph-by-paragraph commentary on his earlier ideas. These works are a companion to Thomasius’s Essays on Church, State, and Politics, and together they provide the first-ever English presentation of this preeminent German thinker. Christian Thomasius (1655-1728) was a German philosopher and legal theorist. He was a cofounder of the University of Halle, where he was also a professor. Thomas Ahnert is a Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Edinburgh. Knud Haakonssen is Professor of Intellectual History at the University of Sussex, England.
