Amatrudo, Anthony (2008) A suggested basis for legal ontology. Ratio Juris, 21 (1) . pp. 19-38. ISSN 0952-1917 [Article] (doi:10.1111/j.1467-9337.2007.00378.x)


It is often argued that associations are intelligent organisms with minds and intentional states of their own. It is also argued that groups are merely a plurality of individuals who are related or associated only in a specific and limited sense. This paper draws on both classical and contemporary scholarship to develop an ontological account of persons which has real-world legal and ethical implications.
