The Legacy of H.L.A. Hart

Susan Mendus (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter suggests that an investigation of some aspects of Hart's private life (as disclosed in the recent biography of Hart by Nicola Lacey) can illuminate some of his arguments and positions on broad matters of political philosophy. The potential for such illumination calls into question the view that philosophical argumentation should be assessed in abstraction from the personal circumstances in which it was produced.
