Natural Law, Natural Rights, and American Constitutionalism
If you have not done so already, do visit our website Natural Law, Natural Rights, and American Constitutionalism (nlnrac.org), designed for scholars, students, and the general public.
This project presents the history of the theory of natural law—or “the laws of Nature,” to quote the Declaration of Independence—with a special focus on its place in American politics and constitutionalism.
The site includes the writings of major thinkers and critics of the natural law tradition, original essays by contemporary scholars, and study guides.
Some of the more popular sections of the site include the pages on John Locke, Thomas Hobbes, Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, and theDeclaration of Independence.
We recently added new sections on natural law in the thought of theProtestant Reformers and of the early Anglican theologian Richard Hooker (whose writings influenced those of John Locke). Another new section presents the famous American political philosopher John Rawls as a critic of the natural law tradition.
