Natural Right and Human Nature:Natural Right and History

Review of Metaphysics 8 (3):468 - 479 (1955)

All the above views are statements of or from the so-called emotive theory of value, or are closely related to that theory. Where causal primacy lies or whether all these theories and views are effects of a more deep-laid cause is difficult to determine. Nevertheless, the common bonds between the various views are evident; the views themselves are prevalent. Any work which challenges the current subjective intuitionism in matters of "right," "good," and the like stands out in illuminated relief. Such a work is Natural Right and History by Leo Strauss.
