Abstract

To attempt to speak coherently about the philosophy of love in conjunction with the law is an eccentric undertaking for an international lawyer. This work asserts the view that “love” plays a significant jurisprudential role in both the writing and philosophical interpretation of the law. It is a powerful norm. If the law is written and interpreted with love for human beings, the position of the use of force will be modified and concede its place to the approbation of equal justice and peace based on the primary value of human integrity. The work will be a comparative discussion, as the adherence of European states to both public international law and European Union norms suggests that neither need there be an inevitable divergence between adherence to both these and to Islamic legal norms. It brings into recognition the principle that the use of armed force for any purpose is a serious violation of the jurisprudence of law and runs contrary to the inherent integrity of humankind and the canon of love for justice.
