My book with Cambridge University Press is available today. It is titled "The Natural Moral Law: The Good After Modernity."
It can be ordered from amazon and other book sellers. I noticed that it ranked #4 today on amazon on the list of jurisprudence books.
If it is ordered directly from Cambridge, and you use the code morallaw12, a 20% discount is offered.
In this book I argue that the good is the central idea for ethics and law. I study classical and modern theories of the good, and answer postmodern skepticism about human nature and the good. My argument is that we must be able to know what is good, and that the good is based on human nature, which is based on what is real. I then give an argument for what is good and discuss how this would ground the moral law, and consider how it applies to some contemporary issues.
I've titled this blog "Summum Bonum," which is latin for the highest good. The quote from Aristotle explains the role of the good in thinking about our actions. When we make choices we either choose something for its own sake, or for the sake of something else. That which is sought for its own sake is the good, or the summum bonum.
