Normativity, Coordination and Authority in Finnis's Philosophy of Law

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter reviews John Finnis, Philosophy of Law: Collected Essays Volume IV (Oxford University Press, 2011). It draws out some central themes of Finnis's work on philosophy of law, focusing on the concepts of normativity, coordination and authority. The chapter also considers some similarities and differences between the natural law theories of Finnis and Michael Detmold, both law students at the University of Adelaide in the late 1950s and early 1960s. I argue that Detmold provides the more convincing account of legal normativity.
