George Duke

George Duke’s chapter examines the question of whether Aristotle is properly regarded as a natural law theorist. He discusses three claims about law historically associated with the natural law tradition: the existence and content of law depends on a divine normative foundation; the existence and content of law depends on a natural normative foundation; and the existence and content of law depends on a rational normative foundation. Duke provides a detailed and nuanced discussion of whether Aristotle should be understood as endorsing any of these propositions. He concludes that, while Aristotle does not endorse the first claim, he does endorse the second and third claims (albeit in a qualified sense).
