Description - Dworkin and His Critics by Justine Burley

Dworkin and His Critics provides an in-depth, analytical discussion of Ronald Dworkin's moral, ethical, legal, and political philosophical writings. As the first text to cover such a wide range of Dworkin's thought, it makes a substantial contribution to a number of ongoing academic debates over abortion, euthanasia, the rule of law, distributive justice, group rights, political obligation, and genetics. Underpinning Dworkin's work are fundamental principles of political morality, discussion of which is a central focus of the book. The 18 contributors include Richard J. Arneson, G. A. Cohen, F. M. Kamm, Will Kymlicka, Philippe van Parijs, Eric Rakowski, Seana Valentine Shiffrin, and Jeremy Waldron. This collection of primarily new essays features substantial replies by Ronald Dworkin and a comprehensive bibliography of his work. Dworkin and His Critics, an interdisciplinary work, is indispensable for students, instructors, and scholars in the fields of philosophy, law, and politics.
