Prompt: Both natural-law theorists, like Thomas Aquinas, and legal positivists, like Hobbes or Austin, refer to “natural law” (and sometimes, in Hobbes and Austin, the phrase “natural rights” is used as well). How is the concept of natural law used by natural-law theorists and by legal positivists? Compare and contrast Thomas’s use with the use of (one or the other of) Hobbes’s or Austin’s use of the concept.
I will be attaching needed texts by Thomas, from the Treatise on Law section of the Summa Theologica, and by Hobbes, from Leviathan, along with Austin’s The Province of Jurisprudence Determined, along with an abstract of all six of Austin’s lectures.
