              This collection of essays falls into three interrelated parts (the essays in parts two and three utilise the Hohfeldian framework of part one), all aimed at furthering our philosophical understanding of rights. Rights stand at the centre of legal, political, and moral discourse. ...A proper understanding of rights is thus of paramount importance to our understanding of law, politics, and morality. All of the essays are cutting-edge, and none has been previously published. The first part, Hohfeld, contains essays by A Halpin and J Penner. These essays take as their starting point the work of celebrated American jurist, WN Hohfeld. Halpin, most generally, considers the value of Hohfeldian neutrality when theorising about legal rights. Penner, meanwhile, considers the ability of Hohfeld's project properly to characterize areas of private law, in particular property rights. The second part, Theories, contains essays by M McBride and M Kramer. These essays take as their starting point the work of two contemporary theorists of rights, viz. G Sreenivasan and L Wenar, each of whom has attempted to transcend the 'Interest/Will Theory' debate by offering new theories of rights. McBride attempts to defend a modified version of Sreenivasan's 'Hybrid Theory' of rights. Kramer, meanwhile, questions the viability of Wenar's 'Several Functions Theory' of rights as a workable new theory of rights. The final third part, Explorations, contains essays by R Cruft, G Sreenivasan, and H Steiner. Each of these three theorists has developed their own sophisticated theories of rights - respectively, 'Hybrid Theory', 'Interest-Theory-with-exceptions', and 'Will Theory'. Each of these theorists seeks to explore certain philosophically interesting phenomena in light of their own theories of rights. By turn, these essays look at the nature and the moral grounding of rights, public goods and third party benefits, and strict liability. The collection is integrated and unified by means of an Introduct

              How do we know what we know? In this stimulating and rigorous book, Mark McBride explores two sets of issues in contemporary epistemology: the problems that warrant transmission poses for the category of basic knowledge; and the status of conclusive reasons, sensitivity, and safe...ty as conditions that are necessary for knowledge. To have basic knowledge is to know (have justification for) some proposition immediately, i.e., knowledge (justification) that doesn't depend on justification for any other proposition. This book considers several puzzles that arise when you take seriously the possibility that we can have basic knowledge. McBride's analysis draws together two vital strands in contemporary epistemology that are usually treated in isolation from each other. Additionally, its innovative arguments include a new application of the safety condition to the law. This book will be of interest to epistemologists both professionals and students.
