    Legal reasoning and legal theory.Neil MacCormick (ed.) - 1978 - New York: Oxford University Press.
    This study focuses on current jurisprudential debate between the "positivist" views of Herbert Hart and the "rights thesis" of Ronald Dworkin. MacCormick provides a critical analysis of the Dworkin position while also modifying Hart's. It stands firmly on its own as a contribution to an extensive literature.

    Legal Reasoning and Legal Theory.Neil MacCormick - 1978 - New York: Clarendon Press.

    Rhetoric and the rule of law: a theory of legal reasoning.Neil MacCormick - 2005 - New York: Oxford University Press.
    This book discusses theories of legal reasoning and provides an overall view of the rhetoric of legal justification. It shows how and why lawyers arguments can be rationally persuasive even though rarely, if ever, logically conclusive or compelling. It examines the role of "legal syllogism" and universality of legal reasoning, looking at arguments of consequentialism and principle, and concludes by questioning the infallibility of judges as lawmakers.

    Rhetoric and the Rule of Law.Neil MacCormick - 2001 - The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 11:51-67.
    The thesis that propositions of law are intrinsically arguable is opposed by the antithesis that the Rule of Law is valued for the sake of legal certainty. The synthesis considers the insights of theories of rhetoric and proceduralist theories of practical reason, then locates the problem of indeterminacy of law in the context of the challengeable character of governmental action under free governments. This is not incompatible with, but required by the Rule of Law, which is misstated as securing legal (...)

    Democracy, Subsidiarity, and Citizenship in the ‘European Commonwealth’.Neil Maccormick - 1997 - Law and Philosophy 16 (4):331-356.
    Is there a 'constitutional moment' in contemporary Europe? What if anything is the constitution of the European Union; what kind of polity is the Union? The suggestion offered is that there is a legally constituted order, and that a suitable term to apply to it is a 'commonwealth', comprising a commonwealth of 'post-sovereign' states. Is it a democratic commonwealth, and can it be? Is there sufficiently a demos or 'people' for democracy to be possible? If not democratic, what is it? (...)

  21. The Ethics of Legalism.Neil Maccormick - 1989 - Ratio Juris 2 (2):184-193.
    “Legalism” is defined as requiring that all matters of legal regulation and controversy ought so far as possible to be conducted in accordance with predetermined rules of considerable generality and clarity. Thus there may be moral limits on governments which ban them from acting on the substantive moral merits of situations with which they have to deal. This is most important in public law, but also applies in private law, e.g., in cases involving property. Hume, Kant, and Hayek are examined (...)

    In 1999, my work as a full-time law professor came to a temporary halt. Shortly before this happened, I brought out a book called Questioning Sovereignty 1 . This attempted to apply my version of the institutional theory of law to certain urgent contemporary questions in the philosophy of law and political philosophy circulating around the ideas and the roles of law, state, and nation in ‘the European Commonwealth’ (as I there called it). Then, partly by chance, I was elected (...)

The reviews and perspectives it represents are thoroughly international in scope and range, with the participation of leading thinkers from six continents. Within the overall theme of 'Enlightenment, Rights and Revolution', each of the sub-themes has been so well explored by its authors that the whole does amount to more than the sum of its parts. As editors, we might have been temped to (...)

    Institutions, Arrangements and Practical Information.Neil Maccormick - 1988 - Ratio Juris 1 (1):73-82.
    A restatement of an institutionalist theory of law is attempted with particular reference to legal reasoning and legal rights. Use is made of Ota Weinberger's concept of “practical information”, focusing on both its momentary and diachronic aspects. Momentary practical information corresponds to the need to know which conduct is required of us at a given moment. The diachronic practical information becomes relevant whenever we wish to stabilize the practical information and to reduce the likelihood of change regarding our ways of (...)

    El lugar común de que las proposiciones jurídicas son intrínsecamente argumentabIes se opone al lugar común rival de que el Estado de Derecho es valorado en consideración a la certeza jurídica. La reconciliación de esos aparentes contrarios toma en cuenta las aportaciones de las teorías de la retórica y de las teorías procedímentales de la razón práctica, situando así el problema de la indeterminación del Derecho en el contexto del carácter cuestionable de la acción estatal en los Estados libres.
