“If we manage to lead a good life, we make our lives tiny diamonds in the cosmic sands”.
Ronald Dworkin (1931-2013), liberal philosopher of law, born Worcester, Massachusetts, and educated at Harvard and Oxford (Magdalen College), who died yesterday.
Dworkin’s epigram elegantly epitomises a key aspect of the “Philosophical Background” of our Mission Statement, which can be accessed under our logo at the top of this page.
