A Conversation about Authority with Susannah Black

Susannah Black (Plough, Breaking Ground) joins me for a discussion about authority, based around chapter 8 of Oliver O’Donovan’s The Ways of Judgment. This is a teaser for a longer term series of conversations we will be having around the book. If you are interested in following along, I highly recommend that you purchase a copy of the book here. Sir Robert Peel’s Principles of Law Enforcement (1829), which we discuss in the video, can be read here.
