Comments Written on the Heart: The Case for Natural Law

  • John

    Having spent the last year reading through the works of Theonomists, I thought it would wise to return to reading on natural law. I happened upon J. Budziszewski’s Written on the Heart in my father’s library and picked it up. Budziszewski is obviously a very intelligent and well-learned man. He knows the material and is well acquainted with the thought of Aristotle, Aquinas (who he refers to as “Thomas”), Locke, and Bentham and Mill. The first portion of the book reviews these philosophe [...]


  • Paul

    Budziszewski (try saying that 10 times fast!) offers a good introduction to the Natural Law tradition in this book. He begins by looking first at Aristotle. He notes that Aristotle has many good things to say and makes positive contributions to the natural law case, but is - strictly speaking - not a natural law thinker but a natural rights thinker. Budziszewski points out that there's some in Aristotle that a Christian just can't accept, either.He then moves on to Aquinas. He points out that Aq [...]

    An intriguingly tough read. Makes one truly take off some blinders in order to follow precisely what is being stated! A worthwhile read for anyone who likes philosophy and desires to expand one's horizons for argumentation or educational purposes!

    It's good, but don't get carried away. Budziszewski does a superb job in presenting the Natural Law Theory. The book is remarkably clear and gives a number of pointed legal applications. It is easy reading, and sometimes quite fun.I have a few qualifications and comments on the book.*I still remain unconvinced to a degree. On one level I agree with Budziszewski--as a medievalist in the tradition of Augustine, Boethius, Anselm, and Aquinas, I believe there exists an objective moral realm and that [...]


  • Matthew Summers

    I must confess I am disappointed by this book. It is not a *case* for natural law as much as it is an introductory history of the concept. The title misled me to believe that there would be developed arguments for and against natural law, but it only offered brief accounts of Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, John Locke, and JS Mill. Even after reading it I didn't feel like a case had been made per se, and I only had a marginally better understanding of the thoughts of each author. I would recommend th [...]
