  1. Legal Reasoning and Legal Theory.Neil MacCormick - 1978 - Oxford University Press.
    This study focuses on current jurisprudential debate between the "positivist" views of Herbert Hart and the "rights thesis" of Ronald Dworkin. MacCormick provides a critical analysis of the Dworkin position while also modifying Hart's. It stands firmly on its own as a contribution to an extensive literature.

  3. Rhetoric and the Rule of Law: A Theory of Legal Reasoning.Neil MacCormick - 2005 - Oxford University Press.
    This book discusses theories of legal reasoning and provides an overall view of the rhetoric of legal justification. It shows how and why lawyers arguments can be rationally persuasive even though rarely, if ever, logically conclusive or compelling. It examines the role of "legal syllogism" and universality of legal reasoning, looking at arguments of consequentialism and principle, and concludes by questioning the infallibility of judges as lawmakers.

    Rhetoric and the Rule of Law.Neil MacCormick - 2001 - The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 11:51-67.
    The thesis that propositions of law are intrinsically arguable is opposed by the antithesis that the Rule of Law is valued for the sake of legal certainty. The synthesis considers the insights of theories of rhetoric and proceduralist theories of practical reason, then locates the problem of indeterminacy of law in the context of the challengeable character of governmental action under free governments. This is not incompatible with, but required by the Rule of Law, which is misstated as securing legal (...)

    In 1999, my work as a full-time law professor came to a temporary halt. Shortly before this happened, I brought out a book called Questioning Sovereignty 1 . This attempted to apply my version of the institutional theory of law to certain urgent contemporary questions in the philosophy of law and political philosophy circulating around the ideas and the roles of law, state, and nation in ‘the European Commonwealth’ (as I there called it). Then, partly by chance, I was elected (...)

    Retórica y Estado de Derecho.Neil Maccormick - 1999 - Isegoría 21:5-21.
    El lugar común de que las proposiciones jurídicas son intrínsecamente argumentabIes se opone al lugar común rival de que el Estado de Derecho es valorado en consideración a la certeza jurídica. La reconciliación de esos aparentes contrarios toma en cuenta las aportaciones de las teorías de la retórica y de las teorías procedímentales de la razón práctica, situando así el problema de la indeterminación del Derecho en el contexto del carácter cuestionable de la acción estatal en los Estados libres. Esto (...)

    Is there a 'constitutional moment' in contemporary Europe? What if anything is the constitution of the European Union; what kind of polity is the Union? The suggestion offered is that there is a legally constituted order, and that a suitable term to apply to it is a 'commonwealth', comprising a commonwealth of 'post-sovereign' states. Is it a democratic commonwealth, and can it be? Is there sufficiently a demos or 'people' for democracy to be possible? If not democratic, what is it? (...)
