This 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 under- lying the fact that every law necessarily belongs to a legal system (the English, or Roman Law, or some other legal system)
The morality of freedom by Joseph Raz( Book )

In the past twenty years Joseph Raz has consolidated his reputation as one of the most acute, inventive, and energetic scholars currently at work in analytic moral and political theory. This new collection of essays forms a representative selection of his most significant contributions to a number of important debates, including the extent of political duty and obligation, and the issue of self-determination. He also examines aspects of the common (and ancient) theme of the relations between law and morality. This volume of essays, available in one volume for the first time, will be essential to legal philosophers and political theorists
Practical reason and norms by Joseph Raz( Book )
59 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 749 libraries worldwide
"In what way are rules normative, and how do they differ from ordinary reasons? What makes normative systems systematic? What distinguishes legal systems, and in what consists their normativity? Joseph Raz answers these three questions by taking reasons as the basic normative concept, and showing the distinctive role reasons have in every case, thus paving the way to a unified account of normativity."--Publisher website

The practice of value by Joseph Raz( Book )
36 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 627 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

11 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 576 libraries worldwide
Value, respect, and attachment by Joseph Raz( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 407 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

From normativity to responsibility by Joseph Raz( Book )
24 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and German and held by 299 libraries worldwide
"What are our duties or rights? How should we act? What are we responsible for? How do we determine the answers to these questions? Joseph Raz examines and explains the philosophical issues underlying these everyday quandaries. He explores the nature of normativity--namely, the fact that we believe and feel we should behave in certain ways, the reasoning behind certain beliefs and emotions, and various basic features of making decisions about what to do. He goes on to consider when we are responsible for our actions and omissions, and offers a novel account of responsibility. We can think of responsibility for unjustified actions or attitudes as a precondition of the blameworthiness of a person for an attitude or an action, or perhaps for a whole set of actions, intentions, or beliefs. Responsibility for justified actions or attitudes may be a precondition of praiseworthiness. Either way responsibility may point to further consequences of being justified or unjustified, rational or not. But crucially, responsibility attaches to people in a more holistic way. Some people are responsible for their actions, while others are not. In this way, Raz argues that the end is in the beginning, in understanding how people are subject to normativity, namely how it is that there are reasons addressed to them, and what is the meaning of that for our being in the world."--Publisher's website
