First published in , Natural Law and Natural Rights is widely heralded as a seminal contribution to the philosophy of law, and an authoritative restatement of natural law doctrine. It has offered generations of students and other readers a thorough grounding in the central issues of legal, moral, and political philosophy from Finnis's distinctive by: There are two “natural law” theories about two different things: i) a natural law theory of morality, or what’s right and wrong, and ii) a natural law theory of positive law, or what’s legal and illegal. The two theories are independent of each other: it’s perfectly consistent to accept one but reject the other. Legal positivism File Size: KB.

Nevertheless, natural law theory does rest upon a number of dubious philosophical propositions. We should not forget that, at least in the formulation of the Catholic Church, the natural law ultimately comes from God. Like the divine command theory, natural law ethics is open to all of the objections of philosophical theology. Is there a God? Furthermore if there is a ‘law,’ there must be a lawgiver. Matthew Levering argues that natural law theory makes sense only within a broader worldview, and that the Bible sketches both such a persuasive worldview and an account of natural law that .

Accordingly, the term ‘natural law’ denotes a natural order of things. ‘Law’ also connotes respectability: law is an order of things that people ought to respect.

Such genesis is seen as determined by nature (whether that reflects creation, evolution, or random chance), and a notional law of nature treated as objective fact that is universally applicable; That is, it exists. I enjoyed Anthony Lisska's book "Aquinas's Theory of the Natural Law." That said, my biggest disappointment is that despite Lisska's attempt to argue (1) that Aquinas's theory (as Lisska has reconstructed it) does not require the existence of God as a necessary condition and (2) that the theory (based on Aquinas' theory of the human person) provides a sufficient basis for a theory of natural /5.Aquinas’s Natural Law Theory In: Ethics for A-Level: For AQA Philosophy and OCR Religious Studies [en ligne].
