Last night, Justin Taylor posted an essay (adapted from a lecture) by Robert P. George who is professor of jurisprudence at Princeton University. Justin, who is a publisher and editor by profession, has taken the essay and put it into an “interview” format with questions he poses as headings, with the answers being the text of George’s essay. It is a very helpful way of reading what is otherwise a pretty lengthy body of writing.
I was not previously familiar with Robert George. But, I am deeply impressed with the way in which he is able to distill complex matters of law, culture, and morality into beautifully stated and reasoned conclusions. They are well worth the read using Justin’s format. And if you want to read the essay in its original format, Justin has a link to the appropriate site. The “interviews” out of the essay are divided into four parts, the links for which are found below. This is really good stuff!
