Reflections on 'The Concept of Law'

A. W. Brian Simpson

  • Presents a vivid recreation of the Oxford climate that produced HLA Hart and his The Concept of Law, one of the most influential works of philosophy of the twentieth century
  • Draws on the author's personal experience to present a satirical look at the shortcomings of post-war Oxford, a witty and engaging read for anyone interested in the history of Oxford philosophy
  • Develops a fresh interpretation of Hart's influences and the nature of his philosophical project, of value to all those teaching and interpreting The Concept of Law
