Abstract

It is twenty-five years since the publication of Neil MacCormick's book Legal Reasoning and Legal Theory, a book that has been in print continuously since its first publication. The book was not only a work of Legal Reasoning, but also one on Legal Theory, developing the former through an engagement with the latter, while it also had a strong influence on ethical issues. The focus of the present book is on how looking at legal reasoning can bring up important theoretical and ethical issues, as MacCormick looks at the issues anew in his current work. In this book his views on the Particular and Universal are presented, and subjected to rigorous examination by leading figures in the field.
