Legal Fundamentals

"Here the great art lies,
to discern in what the law
is to be to restraint and punishment,
and in what things
persuasion only is to work."

-- John Milton (1608-1674) Poet 1644

That sums up the problem pretty neatly, I think. (HT Liberty Quotes)

Dr. Harry Binswanger, in an essay here, presents a philosophical introduction to the nature of objective law.

In Study Groups for Objectivists, that short text will be the subject of a two-week study group this summer. It may be helpful for law students and intellectual activists.
