ANU Law Unrequired Reading List

About 'Philosophy & ethics'

How are laws shaped if not by the philosophies and ethics of the society in which they exist?

From the values of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics which explores the theme of how men should best live, to the lessons laid out in Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil by Hannah Arendt or Machiavelli’s The Prince, the books in this category have shaped us, founded movements, and serve as a reminder for future generations to never forget the impact that laws have.
