"Raphael does not assume that the theories of philosophers must reflect the thought and usage of people generally: some do while others are idiosyncratic, and a number of philosophers neglect the usage of the concept in the context of law. While this book is definitely not a comprehensive history, it is comprehensive in its scope."--BOOK JACKET."
