Philosophy of Law
...have now been posted. A very good set of exams that made assigning grades within the confines of the mandatory curve very difficult.
I've just posted a paper on a problem with Hart's theory of internal legal statements that I don't think has been discussed before in the literature. Strictly for those jurisprudentially inclined.
I have a new paper on Anglophone misinterpretations of Hans Kelsen up on SSRN. I concentrate on Andrei Marmor's reading of Kelsen in his book Philosophy of Law (and in his article on the Pure Theory of Law in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy).
Well, the sabbatical is over and it's time to start posting again. First up: I've posted a new review on Jotwell about Scott Hershovitz's YLJ essay "The End of Jurisprudence."
I have a new posting in Jotwell on an article Ronald Dworkin wrote on international law right before his death.
I recently gave a talk on theories of the purpose of the Second Amendment at the Second Tuesday Forum in Portsmouth. This is the video.
Thought I would post this older video of a symposium I participated in at Princeton's James Madison Program on the 20th Anniversary of Joseph Raz's Morality of Freedom.
