Legal Philosophy in the Common Law World

Gerald J. Postema, University of North Carolina, Philosophy and Law, has published Legal Philosophy in the Twentieth Century: The Common Law World, as Treatise of Legal Philosophy and General Jurisprudence volume 11, Autumn 2011. Here is the abstract.
This above-titled monograph tells a critical history of Anglophone general jurisprudence and legal philosophy in the twentieth century as a tale of two Boston lectures, separated by sixty years, and their respective legacies: Holmes’s “Path of Law” (1897) and Hart’s Holmes Lecture “Positivism and the Separation of Law and Morals” (1958). The text here consists of the Preface and Table of Contents of this soon-to-be-published work.
