Of the Law of Nature

This critical edition is the first ever publication of Hale's Of the Law of Nature, which previously existed only in manuscript form. 

After discussing and defining the law in general, Hale examines the natural law in particular, its discovery and divine origin, and how it relates to both biblical and human laws. Hale's treatise, which was likely written as part of his personal meditations, and was circulated among English lawyers after his death, reveals not only the close relationship between law and theology in his thought, but also the importance of natural law to early modern legal thought.
