(p.143) 8 Some Reflections on Hart and Honoré, Causation in the Law 1
The Legacy of H.L.A. Hart

Judith Jarvis Thomson

Oxford University Press

It concludes that, although no such analysis is available, legal decision-makers can rely on many serviceable generalizations that render such an analysis superfluous.

Keywords:   causation, H. L. A. Hart, Tony Honoré, philosophical analysis
