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)

Speaker:
Sam Kukathas, DPhil student in Law.

Topic:
“Was Hume sceptical of the existence of necessary features of law?”

Abstract:
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.
