1. Jeremy Bentham was born on 15 February 1748 and died on 6 June 1832 inLondon. He was the elder son of an attorney, Jeremiah Bentham(1712–92) and his first wife, Alicia Whitehorn (d. 1759), andbrother to Samuel (1757–1831), a naval architect and diplomat.Bentham’s later interest in educational reform was stimulated byhis unhappy experiences at Westminster School (1755–60) andQueen’s College, Oxford (BA 1763, MA 1766). He describedWestminster as “a wretched place for instruction”(1838–43, X, 30), while his three years at Queen’s, whichhe entered at the age of twelve, were no more stimulating. He viewedthe Oxbridge colleges as seats of privilege, prejudice and idleness,and his Oxford experience left him with a deep distrust of oaths andsparked a general antipathy toward the Anglican establishment (2011,35–40). In the early 1770s, he jotted down notes for a criticalwork on “Subscriptions [to articles of faith]” (UC v,1–32; xcvi, 263–341), and returned to the same theme inthe controversi...

1. The principal objective of analytic jurisprudence has traditionally been to provide an account of what distinguishes law as a system of norms from other systems of norms, such as ethical norms. As John Austin describes the project, analytic jurisprudence seeks “the essence or nature which is common to all laws that are properly so called” (Austin 1995, p. 11). Accordingly, analytic jurisprudence is concerned with providing necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of law that distinguish law from non-law. While this task is usually interpreted as an attempt to analyze the concepts of law and legal system, there is some confusion as to both the value and character of conceptual analysis in philosophy of law. As Brian Leiter (1998) points out, philosophy of law is one of the few philosophical disciplines that takes conceptual analysis as its principal concern; most other areas in philosophy have taken a naturalisticturn, incorporating the tools and methods of the sciences....
