A Book for Darwin Day

Law's Meaning of LifeWho is law for? The book Law’s Meaning of Life: Philosophy, Religion, Darwin, and the Legal Person by Ngaire Naffine attempts to answer this question by exploring four ways of determining legal person-hood. One approach derives from rationalist philosophy, a second from religion, a third from evolutionary biology while the fourth is strictly legalistic and so endeavors to eschew metaphysics altogether. The book offers a coherent and critical account of these complex moral and intellectual processes entailed in the making of legal persons. Find the book on the Law Library Balcony K230.N27 A35 2009.
