Recensioner i media
"The Architecture of Law makes a masterful contribution to constructive jurisprudence in the best tradition of the ongoing encounter between reason and Christian faith. Erudite yet unpretentious, insightful yet careful, McCall's account of human lawmakingstarts at the beginning, where one should indeed start, and then gradually shows the reader exactly why law is correctly defined, pace most modern accounts, as a 'dialecticamong reason, command, and custom.' This book offers a challenging, fascinating, butconsistent journey for the reader. It is an outstanding piece of work." -- Patrick McKinley Brennan, Villanova University "The Architecture of Law is worth reading. Those not immersed in the classical tradition will benefit from this introduction to some of its lesser-known themes... Those who know the tradition well will find in McCall's expression of it fresh and challenging glosses and close attention to its most vexing questions." -- <i>Law and Liberty</i> "The book is nothing short of a masterpiece. It is truly a tour de force that articulates and defends the classical understanding of natural law against detractors (and reformers) of both yesteryear and today. With this book, Brian McCall has established himself as, arguably, the leading natural law luminary in American legal academia." -- Ronald J. Colombo, Hofstra University "While committed opponents of traditional natural law nay not be convinced, McCall's presentation is nonetheless extremely lucid, clear and thought-provoking for those who have become uncomfortable with the supposedly self-evident principles of modern jurisprudence-principles which deny any real connection between law and morality and nature." -- <i>Catholic Herald</i>
