Summary and Info
Drawing on Natural Law theory, this volume argues that moral meaning resides in very basic, essential, natural facts about our existence as human beings. The author demonstrates the validity of this belief, its significance for normativity and illustrates how early natural lawyers implicitly suggested a sophisticated and largely successful reason-based solution to Hume's 'is/ought' problem. The work provides a new approach to Natural Law theory which addresses the problematic reliance on 'essential' facts. "A Natural Approach to Normativity" presents an original perspective on new natural law theory and will be of interest to academics in philosophy of law/moral philosophy, natural law theorists, and students of jurisprudence internationally.
