    Law's meaning of life: philosophy, religion, Darwin, and the legal person.Ngaire Naffine - 2009 - Portland, Or.: Hart.
    The perennial question posed by the philosophically-inclined lawyer is 'What is law?' or perhaps 'What is the nature of law?'

    Shocking Thoughts: A Reply to Anne Bottomley.Ngaire Naffine - 2004 - Feminist Legal Studies 12 (2):175-180.
    This is a response to an article published in an earlier issue of this journal, 29–65) in which an article by this author was cited as a prime example of a dangerous emerging 'orthodoxy' in feminist legal theory and subjected to a sustained and critical analysis. The purpose of this response is to reflect briefly on the rhetorical style and the theoretical orientation of that article, and to consider their worrying implications for the practice of feminist legal theory as a (...)
