Locke and Load
William A. Edmundson
Georgia State University College of Law
Law and Philosophy, Vol. 22, pp. 195-216, 2003
This is a critical review of John Simmons's book, Justification and Legitimacy: Essays on Rights and Obligations (Cambridge 2001). The thrust of the critique is to insist that Lockeans provide a basis for their selective voluntarism about duties and obligations.
