Metaphilosophy of Law

Edited by: Pawel Banas, Adam Dyrda, Tomasz Gizbert-Studnicki

Methodological and metaphilosophical disputes in the contemporary philosophy of law are very vivid, with basic issues remaining controversial. The purpose of this book is to confront approaches of Anglo-Saxon and continental philosophy of law to the following topics: the purpose of legal philosophy, the role of disagreement in legal philosophy, methodology of legal philosophy (conceptual analysis) and normativity of law. Those areas of legal metaphilosophy are drawing more and more attention in the literature. The purpose of the volume is to contribute to the cross-cultural discussions of fundamental issues of philosophy of law. The authors of particular chapters are internationally recognized scholars rooted in various traditions: Anglo-Saxon (Gerald Postema, Dennis Patterson, Kenneth Ehrenberg, Veronica Rodriguez-Blanco), Southern-European (Riccardo Guastini, Manuel Atienza), Nordic (Torben Spaak), German (Ralf Poscher) and Central-European (Jan Wolenski, Tomasz Gizbert-Studnicki, Adam Dyrda). They represent different approaches and different backgrounds. [Subject: Legal Philosophy, Philosophy of Law, Political and Legal Philosophy]
