    Anyone reflecting on the methodology of legal reasoning faces a difficult task.

  • Law as Symbolic Formby Deniz Coskun

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 215.02

    Jurisprudence, according to Cassirer, is not merely the systematic, conceptual pursuance of ethics. They are separate domains for Cassirer, and both direct their claims differently on the individual. Whereas ethics concerns the motives of the individual, law ultimately achieves a cosmos for our world of outward actions. However, they are not separated... more...

  • The Four Lacanian Discoursesby Jeanne Lorraine Schroeder

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 54.95

    This book proposes a taxonomy of jurisprudence and legal practice, based on the discourse theory of Jacques Lacan. In the anglophone academy, the positivist jurisprudence of H.L.A. Hart provides the most influential account of law. But just as positivism ignores the practice of law by lawyers, even within the academy, the majority of professors are... more...
