Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198256515, Paperback)

This book offers a philosophical interpretation of the historical debate between Bentham and classical Common Law Theory, a debate that is fundamental to philosophical thought and has shaped contemporary conceptions of nature, tasks, and limits of law and adjudication. The author draws on the full range of Bentham's published and unpublished writings, and explores the philosophical foundations of Common Law theory, focusing particularly on the writings of Sir Matthew Hale and David Hume.
