Doing Austin justice the reception of John Austin's philosophy of law in nineteenth-century England by Wilfrid E Rumble ( )
10 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Austin was an towering presence in 19th-century English jurisprudence, and many of his ideas remain viable today. They include his conception of analytical jurisprudence, his sharp distinction between law and morality, and his utilitarian theory of resistance to government. Yet he has always had his critics and they have become ever shriller in the last 50 years. If it is not a requirement of political correctness to belittle his ideas, the tendency to do so is widespread. Critics often dismiss Austin with a wave of the hand, or reduce his jurisprudence to a few of his ideas, such as his conce

The Province of Jurisprudence Determined (1832) is a classic of nineteenth-century English jurisprudence, a subject on which Austin had a profound impact. His book is primarily concerned with a meticulous explanation of most of the core concepts of his legal philosophy, including his conception of law, his separation of law and morality, and his theory of sovereignty. Almost a quarter of it consists of an interpretation and defence of the principle of utility. This edition includes the complete and unabridged text of the fifth (1885) and last edition. The comprehensive introduction discusses Austin's life, the main themes of his book, leading criticisms of his ideas, and recent interpretations of his legal philosophy. The edition also includes an up-to-date bibliography and biographical synopses of the principal figures mentioned in the text

15 editions published between 1962 and 1986 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The word utiliarianism was coined by Jeremy Bentham in 1781 in a letter to friend in which he said: "A new religion would be an odd sort of thing without a name." While the doctrine never quite became a religion, its thesis, as expressed by Mill in the first essay in this volume-that the good and right are to be defined as that which promotes happiness-became the dominant naturalistic theory of the nineteenth century and provided the moral basis for classical liberalism

Sobre la utilidad del estudio de la jurisprudencia by John Austin ( Book )
9 editions published between 1951 and 2011 in Spanish and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sobre la utilidad del estudio de la jurisprudencia de John Austin, es la obra que esclarece la esencia del derecho y de la legislación, el propio objeto de la jurisprudencia que conforma en su plataforma el beneficio del conocimiento de una ciencia cuya finalidad es desentrañar los mecanismos y principios de las reglamentaciones y estatutos que rigen el comportamiento humano en las sociedades establecidas. El autor indaga y profundiza en la necesidad de estudiar la naturaleza del derecho y en distinguir las diversas clases de leyes que lo conforman y se aplican en el campo jurídico. Propone la utilidad que tiene el estudio de la jurisprudencia en el acontecer reglamentario, la importancia de definir los comienzos que constituyen el propio objeto de las leyes, no con el fin de determinar su valor, criterio o medida, cuyo trabajo es del legislador; sino de exponer los principios y distinciones comunes a los sistemas del derecho. John Austin plantea las ventajas que se obtienen al analizar el sistema del derecho mediante el descubrimiento y la definición de los componentes que integran las normas que lo fundamentan, arrojando luz sobre la oscuridad verbal que puede confundir el derecho y la moral
