How Hume and Kant Reconstruct Natural Law

Kenneth R. Westphal

Oxford University Press

Chapter 3 examines and reconstructs Hume’s account of the basic rules of justice, and how these rules count, on his view, as natural laws. It develops significantly further Baier’s (1991) insightful suggestions about the character of Hume’s analysis to show that it is a powerful fragment of, and basis for, Natural Law Constructivism.
