Value, respect, and attachment by Joseph Raz ( Book )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 847 libraries worldwide
"Joseph Raz is one of the world's leading philosophers of law, and in his Seeley Lectures he reflects critically on one of the central tenets of ethical thought, the view that values are universal. How can the latter be so, when evaluative properties are historically or socially dependent? Professor Raz concludes that we should try to understand what is and what is not entailed by the universality of values, with such a proper understanding central to the future hopes of mankind, rather than abandoning the belief altogether. This is a concise, pithy and attractively humane account of some fundamental questions of social existence, enlivened by examples drawn from a wide range of sources, including The Little Prince of Saint-Exupery. It will appeal to students and practitioners of law, philosophy and politics."--Jacket.

This book is based on a doctoral thesis submitted at the University of Oxford. -Pref. This work is an introduction to a general study of legal systems, that is to the study of the systematic nature of law, and the examination of the presuppositions and implications underlying the fact that every law necessarily belongs to a legal system.... From an analytic standpoint ... this essay is concerned with the problem of existence, the problem of identity, [and] the problem of structure. -Introd.
The practice of value by Joseph Raz ( Book )
20 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 724 libraries worldwide
"The Practice of Value explores the nature of value and its relation to the social and historical conditions under which human agents live. At the core of the book are the Tanner Lectures delivered at Berkeley in 2001 by Joseph Raz, who has been one of the leading figures in moral and legal philosophy since the 1970s. Raz argues that values depend importantly on social practices, but that we can make sense of this dependence without falling back on cultural relativism. In response, three eminent philosophers, Christine Korsgaard, Robert Pippin, and Bernard Williams, offer their own distinctive reflections on the connections between value and practice. The book begins with an introduction by Jay Wallace, setting the scene for what follows, and ends with a response from Raz to his commentators. The result is a fascinating debate, accessible to readers throughout and beyond philosophy, about the relations between human values and human life."--Jacket.
