Essays on Bentham Summary

Essays on Bentham: Jurisprudence and Political Philosophy by H. L. A. Hart (formerly Professor of Jurisprudence, formerly Professor of Jurisprudence, University of Oxford)

In his introduction to these closely linked essays Professor Hart offers both an exposition and a critical assesment of some central issues in jurisprudence and political theory. Some of the essays touch on themes to which little attention has been paid, such as Bentham's identification of the forms of mistification protecting the law from criticism; his relation to Beccaria; and his conversion to democratic radicalism and a passionate admiration for the United States.
