NOMOS

About NOMOS

In 1958, Harvard University Press published the first volume of NOMOS, the first yearbook of the American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy. Edited by Carl Friedrich, and entitled Authority, it began a series of annual volumes published or currently in production. These thematic collections have been staples of political and legal philosophical scholarship for the last half-century and in many cases have become the first place for scholars to turn on any given theme. The essays continue to be a valuable resource for interdisciplinary research and undergraduate and graduate education.

The following are tables of contents for all of our published NOMOS volumes, beginning with the most recent:
