9780199756773: Law, Person, and Community: Philosophical, Theological, and Comparative Perspectives on Canon Law

Law, Person, and Community: Philosophical, Theological, and Comparative Perspectives on Canon Law takes up the fundamental question "What is law?" through a consideration of the interrelation of the concepts of law, person, and community. As with the concept of law described by secular legal theorists, canon law aims to set a societal order that harmonizes the interests of individuals and communities, secures peace, guarantees freedom, and establishes justice. At the same time, canon law rests upon a traditional understanding of the spiritual end of the human person and religious nature of community.

The comparison of one of the world's ancient systems of religious law with contemporary conceptions of law rooted in secular theory raises questions about the law's power to bind individuals and communities. Professor John J. Coughlin employs comparative methodology in an attempt to reveal the differing concepts of the human person reflected in both canon law and secular legal theory. Contrasting the contemporary positivistic view of law with the classical view reflected in canon law, Law, Person, and Community discusses the relationship between canon law, theology, and natural law. It also probes the interplay between the metaphysical and historical in the theory of law by an examination of canonical equity, papal authority, and the canon law of marriage. It juxtaposes the assumptions of canon law about church-state relations with those of the modern liberal state as exemplified by U.S. first amendment jurisprudence. No scholarly work has yet addressed this question of how the principles and substance of canon law, both past and present, relate to current issues in legal theory, such as the foundation of human rights and in particular the right of religious freedom for individuals and communities.

About the Author :


Rev. John J. Coughlin, O.F.M is a Franciscan friar and Catholic priest. He presently serves as Professor of Law and Concurrent Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame. Father Coughlin has also taught at St. Bonaventure University, St. Joseph's Seminary (Dunwoodie), St. John's University Law School, and the Pontifical Gregorian University (Rome). His book Canon Law: A Comparative Study with Anglo-American Legal Theory was published by Oxford University Press in 2011.

Review :


"John J. Coughlin's book, Law, Person, and Community: Theological, Philosophical, and Comparative Perspectives on Canon Law, is a breath of fresh air in the positivistic polluted atmosphere of the Western legal systems. His approach, instead of following the rule: 'whatever the Queen in Parliament enacts is law', which often has been concretized in legislation contrary to the 'Creator's operating manual', opens a path to a better understanding of human ecology and recognition that human nature needs to be better understood and respected in legislation."
--Ernest Caparros, Visiting Professor,
Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (Rome, Italy)


"A notably significant contribution to a better understanding both of human law in general and of the special character of a religious law that, by its insight into the nature and destiny of human persons and into the community established to bring these persons to eternal life, differs profoundly from the laws held out by religions earlier and later than Catholicism."
--John Finnis, Professor of Law & Legal Philosophy Emeritus
University of Oxford


"John Coughlin's book should be required reading not only in civil [secular] and canon law schools but also in theological institutions. His understanding and elucidation of canon law as both an ordinance of reason and an ordinance of faith has important implications not only for specifically theological disciplines - e.g., ecclesiology, Christology, systematic theology, and Christian anthropology - but also for understanding both canon and civil law and each discipline's origin and application. Law, Person, & Community provides the necessary foundation to approach a variety of issues much to the fore in contemporary legal debate: the role of law in civil society and in the Catholic Church; the intentionality of both civil and canon law; and the interaction between civil and canon law. These issues in turn permit a logical and intelligent discussion on the essential question of human rights - their origin and teleology."
--Robert J. Kaslyn, SJ, Dean, School of Canon Law, Catholic Unive

Description du livre Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2012. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Law, Person, and Community: Philosophical, Theological, and Comparative Perspectives on Canon Law takes up the fundamental question What is law? through a comparative study of canon law and secular legal theory. Canon law is analogous to the concept of law described by secular theorists such as Austin, Kelsen, Holmes, and H. L. A. Hart. Consistent with the secular concept, canon law aims to set a societal order that harmonizes the interests of individuals and communities, secures peace, guarantees freedom, and establishes justice. At the same time, canon law reflects a claim about the spiritual end of the human person and religious nature of community. The comparison of one of the world s ancient systems of religious law with contemporary conceptions of law rooted in secular theory raises questions about the law s power to bind individuals and communities. For example, to what extent, does each of the approaches to law reflect the theory of Austin which understands law as a command given by the sovereign and backed by the coercive power of the state? Or, as H. L. A. Hart suggested, does law require an additional internal meaning that carries the power to bind? If internal meaning is a necessary constituent to law, how might religious and secular conceptions of it differ? In addition to these questions, Law, Person, and Community asks the fundamental question What is law? through a comparative study of canon law and secular legal theory. This book also includes comparative consideration of the failure of canon law to address the clergy sexual abuse crisis, the canon law of marriage, administrative law, the rule of law, and equity. Professor John J. Coughlin employs comparative methodology in an attempt to reveal and contrast the concepts of the human person reflected in both canon law and secular legal theory.
