Product Description


Every essay in this collection contains many interesting and important claims, insights, and speculations, if not 'about law', then about legal theory. Brian H. Bix, The Cambridge Law Jounral These essays of Gardner are some of the most interesting and challenging contributions to the debate about the nature of law in recent years. Kevin Toh, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews The result is a seminal body of exceptionally ground-clearing and lucid thinking on some fundamental arguments and assumptions of legal theory. The volume brings together Gardner's most celebrated essays in general jurisprudence, written over more than a decade, along with some unpublished material, particularly in the essay on the "rule of law" (chapter 8) and the closing methodological reflection on "law in general. Maris Kopcke Tinture, American Journal of Jurisprudence
