Private Law and the Rule of Law

Private Law and the Rule of Law

The rule of law is widely perceived to be a public law doctrine, concerned with the way in which governmental authority conforms to the dictates of law. The goal of this book is to challenge this presumption. The chapters in this volume all consider the idea that the rule of law concerns the nature of law generally and the conditions under which any relationship - that among citizens as well as that between citizens and the state - becomes subject to law. Addressing two major questions, they ask if our understanding of the rule of law is enriched by considering how and to what degree it is expressed or realized in private law, and whether our understanding of the private law is enriched by adding the principles of the rule of law to the traditional list of core private law concepts. Bringing together leading philosophers of private and public law, this volume examines key questions in a little-explored field, and will be essential reading for all those interested in the rule of law and in private law theory.

Phenomenology in Japan

Phenomenology in Japan

Since the introduction of phenomenology to Japan in the 1910's, Japan has steadily become a major international site for both original and scholarly phenomenological work. Phenomenology in Japan presents several of Japan's leading phenomenologists, studied in both the Buddhist and Western thought, who bring to bear their unique backgrounds on our rich fields of experience. These contributions converge in novel ways on the problem of `dualist', and draw on resources within the phenomenological tradition to respond to its challenges.

No Trespassing

I'm God's Property

No Trespassing

Let’s talk about sex. We might as well talk about it, because it’s everywhere. Our culture continually bombards us with its way for sex in movies, television shows, music, magazines, and other media. But do you know that God has a way for sex, too? In fact, He created sex—it was His great idea! In No Trespassing: I’m God’s Property, Leah Holder proposes that God’s way is the best way. Leah first explains why we should follow God’s rules for sex. In addition to faith-based reasons, she highlights practical reasons, such as sexually transmitted diseases, unplanned pregnancies, and mental health issues. Then, Leah answers the next big question: How? Is it even possible to follow God’s way for sex when so many people don’t? With clarity, transparency, and humor, Leah presents Biblical truths and personal testimonies regarding how we can be sexually pure within this sex-crazy world. No Trespassing contains three brief sections—mind, body, and heart. Within them, Leah provides practical tips to guide us on our journeys to sexual purity. If we’re already on the sexually-pure path, we’ll be encouraged to remain on it. If we’ve departed from the sexually-pure path, or if we’ve never been on it, we’ll be reminded of God’s love and forgiveness, and we’ll be directed to the way to purity. Out of her love for God, others, and herself, Leah Holder has committed to live sexually pure. Although she falls far short of perfection, the Lord has enabled her to live in consistent victory over sexual sin. The advice she provides in No Trespassing isn’t based on a theory she heard about but on a reality she lives! After reading No Trespassing, Leah hopes you will experience the victory and freedom that she enjoys.
