The Natural Law a Study in Legal and Social History and Philosophy

Originally published in German in 1936, The Natural Law is the first book to illustrate the differences between traditional natural law, as represented in the writings of Cicero, Thomas Aquinas, and Hooker, and the groundbreaking teachings on natural rights of Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau. Starting from the legacy of Greek and Roman life and thought, Rommen traces the tradition of natural law to its replacement by legal positivism, concluding with what the author calls “the resurgence” of natural law thought in recent times. In seven chapters, each Romman examines “The History of the Idea of Natural Law” and “The Philosophy and Content of Natural Law.” In his introduction, Russell Hittinger places Rommen`s work in the context of the contemporary debate over the relevance of natural law to philosophical investigations and constitutional interpretations.
