Abstract

This above-titled monograph tells a critical history of Anglophone general jurisprudence and legal philosophy in the twentieth century as a tale of two Boston lectures, separated by sixty years, and their respective legacies: Holmes’s "Path of Law" (1897) and Hart’s Holmes Lecture "Positivism and the Separation of Law and Morals" (1958). The text here consists of the Preface and Table of Contents of this soon-to-be-published work.

Keywords: Jurisprudence, Legal Philosophy, Holmes, Hart, Raz, Dworkin, Waldron, Authority
