The Legacy of H.L.A. Hart

Hillel Steiner (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers various factors that may have led Hart to dissociate himself from his renowned 1955 essay on natural rights. It concludes that neither Hart's subsequent doubts about the Will Theory of rights nor the difficulties of deriving certain rights from the one natural right championed in the 1955 essay can account for Hart's apparent repudiation of that essay.

Keywords:   natural rights, H. L. A. Hart, Will Theory, Wesley Hohfeld
