Sam Kukathas: “Was Hume sceptical of the existence of necessary features of law?”
February 19, 2013 @ 19:30 - 20:30
Next meeting of the Hayek Discussion Group will take place on Tuesday, 19 February (7.30pm) in Christ Church, Lecture Room 2. (Facebook event)
Sam Kukathas, DPhil student in Law.
“Was Hume sceptical of the existence of necessary features of law?”
In this paper I consider Hume’s scepticism about claims to knowledge, and the impact this plays in considerations about law consisting of necessary features. I consider Hume’s necessity argument in relation to H.L.A Hart’s minimum content of natural law thesis.
