Brian Leiter is widely recognized as the leading philosophical interpreter of the jurisprudence of American Legal Realism, and the most influential proponent of the relevance of the naturalistic turn in philosophy to the problems of legal philosophy. Naturalizing Jurisprudence collects newly revised versions of ten of his best-known essays. Leiter has supplied a lengthy new introductory essay, as well as postscripts to several of the essays, in which he responds to challenges to his interpretive and philosophical claims by academic lawyers and philosophers. This volume is essential reading for anyone interested in jurisprudence and the philosophy of law.

"[A] work that goes well beyond the individual essays to present a trenchant, multi-faceted and mutually-reinforcing set of challenges to core views and methodologies that are prevalent in the field.... the book is also agenda-setting: it clarifies the impact that naturalistic developments in philosophy can have on core questions in analytic jurisprudence, while gesturing towards a larger and partly empirical project aimed at working out the full scope of these consequences for legal epistemology, the nature of law, and the objectivity of legal judgment.... an important book by one of the most influential legal philosophers of our time."--Robin Bradley Kar, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
