Synopsis:

Concepts of legal justice have had an enormous influence on the history of humanity. Jurisprudence - which is also known as "legal theory" or "legal philosophy" - is the pursuit of wisdom about law, legal systems and justice. This edited collection offers an accessible introduction to Western jurisprudence, a tradition that stretches from ancient Greek philosophy to contemporary postmodern thought. The volume includes 20 chapters from selected authors on all the main historical and established schools of Western jurisprudence, as well as on emerging perspectives such as critical race theory, law-literature scholarship, and the influence of psychoanalysis on jurisprudence. The aim of the book is to make this sometimes complex and difficult subject accessible to undergraduate students of law, politics and philosophy. By combining overviews of legal philosophies with critical assessments, the collection will heighten awareness of the significance of theory in efforts to understand the roles and dilemmas of law in contemporary Western society.

While the collection's main purpose is to serve as an undergraduate textbook, it is also essential reading for those judges and lawyers who seek to remain informed regarding the present state of legal theory, and for the general reader with an interest in law and justice systems.
