Liberty and Nature: An Aristotelian Defense of Liberal Order is a 1991 political philosophy book by Douglas B. Rasmussen and Douglas Den Uyl. Tom G. Palmer writes that Rasmussen and Den Uyl, who are influenced by Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, defend a version of "moral realism" and explore "the idea that rights are a requirement of the life of a living reasoning entity."[1]
