Abstract

This essay, written for the 2009 John F. Scarpa Conference at Villanova focusing on the work of Professor Joseph Vining, attempts to provide a sympathetic exposition of what might be described, as a translation and with apologies (because Vining would likely be horrified by the description), as Vining’s distinctively personalist methodology, epistemology, and ontology.

Keywords: jurisprudence, legal philosophy, religion, authority

JEL Classification: K10, K39
