Excerpt from Elements of Right and of the Law: To Which Is Added a Historical and Critical Essay Upon the Several Theories of Jurisprudence
IN submitting this little work upon jurisprudence to the public, the author is conscious that the sub j ect is one not likely to attract at first sight either the professional or the general reader; as the latter will probably regard it as belonging exclusively to the province of the former; while the former will be apt to consider any work on general principles as nu worthy the attention of the practical law yer. It will not be out of place, therefore, to explain at some length the object and scope of the work, with a view of showing that the subject at least is one pre eminently worthy of the attention of all intelligent readers.
The subject is expressed in the title of the work, and will be readily understood by reference to the table of contents. The first book treats of the nature of rights, and of their several kinds, and of the princi ples by which they are determined; and the second of the nature and general principles of the law, and of its relation to right; the remaining book consists of a historical and critical review of the several theories of jurisprudence.
