The concept of practical reason is central to contemporary thought on ethics and the philosophy of law - acting . This book explores these questions, vital to understanding the nature of law and morality.

The concept of practical reason is central to contemporary thought on ethics and the philosophy of law - acting well means acting for good reasons. Explaining this requires several stages. For more advanced scholars it also offers a reinterpretation of Kant's views on moral autonomy and Smith's on self-command, marrying Smith's 'moral sentiments' to Kant's 'categorical imperative' in a novel way.

The theory of law and practical reason offered in MacCormick's latest book constitutes an insightful approach through which to tackle some of the more debated issues in jurisprudence and practical philosophy today. Critical reflection on MacCormick's theory, thus, may indeed by the way to work toward an insightful treatment of reason applied to practical disputes. Stefano Bertea, Journal of Law and Society, Volume 23, N., 2009. The book is clearly written in MacCormick's usual lucid and lively style avoiding technicalities, and a pleasure to read.

The central question dealt with in the book is 'Can reason be practical?' and MacCormick’s answer to this question is 'loudly affirmative  . In thus defending the existence of practical reason, MacCormick goes against of the greatest figures in twentieth century legal philosophy, viz. the legal positivists Hans Kelsen and Alf Ross, and possibly also against a third great figure, viz. the legal positivist H. L. A. Hart. Explaining this requires several stages

The concept of practical reason is central to contemporary thought on ethics and the philosophy of law - acting well means acting for good reasons. Explaining this requires several stages. How do reasons relate to actions at all, as incentives and in explanations? What are values, how do they relate to human nature, and how do they enter practical reasoning? How do the concepts of 'right and wrong' fit in, and in what way do they involve questions of mutual trust among human beings? How does our moral freedom - our freedom to form our own moral commitments - relate to our responsibilities to each other? How is this final question transposed into law and legal commitments? This book explores these questions, vital to understanding the nature of law and morality. It presents a clear account of practical reason, valuable to students of moral philosophy and jurisprudence at undergraduate or postgraduate levels. For more advanced scholars it also offers a reinterpretation of Kant's views on moral autonomy and Smith's on self-command, marrying Smith's 'moral sentiments' to Kant's 'categorical imperative' in a novel way.
