Dempsey on Arguing About Prostitution

Dempsey michelleMichelle Madden Dempsey (Villanova University School of Law) has posted How to Argue About Prostitution (Criminal Law & Philosophy, 2011) on SSRN. Here is the abstract: 

This article provides a comparative analysis of various methodologies employed in building arguments regarding prostitution law and policy, and reflects on the proper aims of legal philosophy more generally. Taking Peter de Marneffe’s Liberalism and Prostitution (OUP 2010) as a launching point for these reflections, the article offers a mostly favourable review of the book as a whole, and defends the philosophical enterprise as one (amongst other) valuable ways to argue about prostitution.
