Readings in the Philosophy of Law free pdf This anthology of classical, contemporary, philosophical and legal essays/cases focuses on legal philosophy as its own subject--rather than being a part of social/political philosophy or applied ethics. The essays within this reader focus on how law is organized and the particular philosophical issues that it raises. The book requires students to think through actual debates--many of them still currently in the courts.
