Hart and the Principles of Legality

(p.67) 4 Hart and the Principles of Legality
The Legacy of H.L.A. Hart

Jeremy Waldron (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter contends that Hart in some portions of his work relies upon an understanding of the fundamental principles of legality as moral principles, even though Hart elsewhere insists that the principles of legality are morally neutral. It redefends the position of Lon Fuller in the debates between Hart and Fuller that took place several decades ago.

Keywords:   Lon Fuller, H. L. A. Hart, legality, legal positivism, rule of law
