A landmark work of political and legal philosophy, Ronald Dworkin's Taking Rights Seriously was acclaimed as a major work on its first publication in 1977 and remains profoundly influential in the 21st century. A forceful statement of liberal principles - championing the legal, moral and political rights of the individual against the state - Dworkin demolishes prevailing utilitarian and legal-positivist approaches to jurisprudence. Developing his own theory of adjudication, he applies this to controversial public issues, from civil disobedience to positive discrimination. Elegantly written and

The author argues for judicial decision making to be based on interpretation rather than simply applying past legal decisions.

Justice for hedgehogs by Ronald Dworkin( Book )

29 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the book : "The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. Value is one big thing. The truth about living well and being good and what is wonderful is not only coherent but mutually supporting : what we think about any one of these must stand up, eventually, to any argument we find compelling about the rest."--Book jacket

How should a judge's moral convictions bear on his judgments about what the law is? In these essays, Dworkin charts a variety of dimensions in which law and morals are interwoven. He argues that pragmatism is empty as a theory of law, and that value pluralism misunderstands the nature of moral concepts
Equality and preferential treatment( Book )

9 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays, with one exception originally published in Philosophy & Public Affairs, consider the moral problems associated with improving the social and economic position of disadvantaged groups. If the situation of women and minorities improves so that their opportunities are equal to those of more favored groups, will they then be in a competitive position conducive to equal achievement? If not, can preferential hiring or preferential admission to educational institutions be justified? The contributors explore the complexities of this problem from several points of view. The discussions in Part I are more theoretical and concentrate on the application to this case of general considerations from ethical theory. The discussions in Part II also take up theoretical questions, but they start from specific problems about the constitutionality and the effectiveness of certain methods of achieving equality and counteracting discrimination. The two groups of essays demonstrate admirably the close connection between moral philosophy and questions of law and policy. The issues discussed include compensation, liability, victimization, the significance of group membership, the intrinsic importance of racial, sexual, or meritocratic criteria, and the overall effects of preferential policies. -- Back cover
