Essays in Legal, Social, and Political Philosophy

Herman Dooyeweerd, Essays in Legal, Social, and Political Philosophy (Edward Mellen Press 2001).

Dooyeweerd was a Calvinist law professor and life-long student of the law. He dedicated that study to the integration of faith and learning. His works are still difficult to find, and his Encyclopedia of Legal Science is often difficult reading (especially now, since much of it has not been translated from the Dutch). John Witte calls Dooyeweerd “a premier Christian polymath who commands the attention of scholars in every discipline who seek to integrate faith and learning.” He was a follower of Kuyperian political philosophy, but he goes beyond Kuyper in the depth of his jurisprudence.

You can find excerpts of his work at the Dooyeweerd Centre homepage:
