About the Author:


Jules Coleman is Wesley Newcomb Hohfeld Professor of Jurisprudence and Philosophy, Yale University. He is the editor of the Journal of Legal Theory.

Review:


* "An illuminating and enthralling read ... Among other virtues, The Practice of Principle presents perhaps the most developed statement of inclusive legal positivism to date. In doing so, it advances our understanding not only of that position, but also of the various positions arrayed against it."--Modern Law Review


"Practice is dense and rich, with new arguments appearing on almost every page. . . for those with a serious interest in the field of legal philosophy, this is a must-read. . . . The reader has the impression of being invited to a particularly lively philosophy seminar, whose members are both familiar and relatively new. On every page Coleman is confronting, criticizing, and endorsing other's views, as well as explaining how his own views have shifted over time. . . . Practice of Principle is exceptional for the fresh air it breathes into old debates, blowing aside the dust of tangential debates and leaving clean a work area in which beautiful philosophy proceeds."--Michigan Law Review

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Jules Coleman, one of the world s most influential philosophers of law here expounds his recent views on a range of important issues in legal theory. Coleman offers for the first time an explicit account of the pragmatist method that has long informed his work, and takes on the views of highly respected contemporaries such as Ronald Dworkin and Joseph Raz. The first part of the book builds on Coleman s well-known corrective justice account of tort law, highlighting the sophisticated pragmatist methodology that he brings to bear on legal theory and pressing further his critique of the law and economics school of legal analysis. The second part advances a new articulation of the jurisprudential view associated most closely with Coleman - Inclusive Legal Positivism. Many of Coleman s most controversial claims are here defended as part of a comprehensive new account of law as a conventional practice. The third part takes up the question whether conceptual analysis of the law - an approach that has long dominated philosophical thinking on the topic - is even possible. Rejecting recent arguments that it must be replaced by a normative or naturalized jurisprudence, Coleman defends his distinctive form of pragmatist conceptual analysis.
