(p.73) 5 What is Natural Law Like?
Reason, Morality, and Law

Waldron Jeremy

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses the theory of natural law. While acknowledging that John Finnis' work in Natural Law and Natural Rights is a valuable contribution to jurisprudence and practical philosophy, the chapter attempts to show that there is a further question worth asking — what is natural law like? — to which answer Finnis's book does not actually make much of a contribution.

Keywords:   John Finnis, natural law, Natural Law and Natural Rights, jurisprudence, practical philosophy
