Creon's Ghost Law Justice and the Humanities

Tomain

Since the ancient Greeks, a perennial theme in both literature and philosophy has been the conflict between man's law and "higher law." Creon's Ghost explores key humanities texts discussing this conflict while bringing these texts to bear upon a wide range of contemporary legal problems. As these debates are considered in this book, the author uses texts such as Antigone and Plato's Republic and pairs them with the most important jurisprudence texts of the 20th century to explore different approaches to the issue or court ruling under consideration.
