Pufendorf's classic Law of Nature and Nations presents an entire system of jurisprudence, private, public, and international, based on the conception of natural law. Beginning with a consideration of the fundamental principles of law and its various divisions, Pufendorf proceeds to a discussion of the validity of customs, the doctrines of necessity and innate human reason. The remainder of this work applies the principles of Books I & II to various matters of private law.
