A Life of H.L.A. Hart

This chapter focuses on the time H. L. A. Hart's spent in Harvard University. In early September 1956, Herbert set out from Southampton on the Queen Elizabeth, bound for New York. He was heading for the pinnacle of the American University system, Harvard, where he had been invited to spend a year visiting both the Law School and the Philosophy Department. Harvard Law School — indeed Harvard University — presented him with an intellectual environment strikingly different from Oxford, and one which he could not reasonably have expected to be particularly welcoming.
