About the Author

Adam J. MacLeod is an associate professor at the Thomas Goode Jones School of Law, Faulkner University, USA.


'Property and Practical Reason's wider significance is that it provides a template for further investigations of institutions that touch directly on economic life from the perspective of practical reason.' Samuel Gregg, Public Discourse

'Adam MacLeod is … a figure to watch, a fresh and tempered voice in the increasingly ideological field of jurisprudence and legal theory … this book should be read …' Allen Mendenhall, Online Library of Law and Liberty (

'MacLeod elaborates at length on what so many have forgotten: that the freedom established by private property has not only helped 'countless inventors, entrepreneurs, artists, scientists, and authors to make the world a more livable, beautiful and healthy place'.' Samuel Gregg, Public Discourse
