(p.155) Chapter 7 Selling Philosophy to the Lawyers: The Chair of Jurisprudence
A Life of H.L.A. Hart

Nicola Lacey

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on H. L. A. Hart's experiences as Chair of Jurisprudence at University College. Herbert's inaugural lecture as Professor of Jurisprudence, ‘Definition and Theory in Jurisprudence’, delivered in 1953, which laid out the positive and substantive agenda which he saw as defining the autonomous terrain of a jurisprudence informed by analytical philosophy. The lecture set out Herbert's stall as a linguistic philosopher prepared both to bring the insights of philosophy to law, and to exploit his legal understanding to generate a fund of examples suitable for philosophical analysis.

Keywords:   analytical philosophy, Chair of Jurisprudence, University College, philosophy of law
