The Best of the OLL No. 71: Lysander Spooner, “Natural Law; or the Science of Justice” (1882)

This is part of “The OLL Reader: An Anthology of the Best of the OLL” which is a collection of some of the most important material in the OLL. A thematic list with links to HTML versions of the texts is available [here](/pages/best-of-the-oll). In this pamphlet Spooner presents his theory of natural law and natural rights which is the foundation of his political and legal theories. It was planned to be the first part of a longer work but he never completed it.
