Abstract

This essay reviews Nicola Lacey's recent biography of H.L.A. Hart. The essay claims that Hart's jurisprudence is fraught with unacknowledged psychoanalytic content. Lacey's book shows that Hart's life is equally as fraught as the jurisprudence is.

Keywords: Hart, psychoanalysis, jurisprudence
