Originally published in German in 1936, The Natural Law is the first work to clarify the differences between traditional natural law as represented in the writings of Cicero, Aquinas, and Hooker and the revolutionary doctrines of natural rights espoused by Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau. Beginning with the legacies of Greek and Roman life and thought, Rommen traces the natural law tradition to its displacement by legal positivism and concludes with "the reappearance" of natural law thought in more recent times. In seven chapters each, Rommen explores "The History of the Idea of Natural Law" and "The Philosophy and Content of the Natural Law."
