Discussion A Symposium on Nigel Simmonds's Law as a Moral IdeaIntroduction

Jurisprudence 1 (2):241-244 (2011)
Abstract
This issue of Jurisprudence features a symposium on Nigel Simmonds's Law as a Moral Idea (Oxford, 2007). There are essays by John Finnis, John Gardner, Timothy Endicott and a Reply by Nigel Simmonds. The papers are based on presentations given at a panel discussion in Oxford in December 2009. In this 'Introduction' Pavlos Eleftheriadis outlines the main themes of the book, namely that (a) the idea of law is intrinsically moral, (b) the distinction between analytical and normative jurisprudence is false and (c) law is not a list of rules or a chain of authorisation, but a system of thought that follows the basic principles of practical reason
