9780415679824: JURISPRUDENCE THEMES AND CONCEPTS- SECOND EDITION

Jurisprudence: Themes and Concepts offers an original introduction to, and critical analysis of, the central themes studied in jurisprudence courses. The book is presented in three parts each of which contains General Themes, Advanced Topics, tutorial questions and guidance on further reading:

  • Law and Politics, locating the place of law within the study of institutions of government
  • Legal Reasoning, examining the contested nature of the application of law
  • Law in Modernity, exploring the social forces that shape legal development.

This second edition includes enhanced discussion of the rise of legal positivism within the context of the rise of the modern state, the changing role of natural and human rights discourse, concepts of justice in and beyond the nation state, the impact of emergency doctrines in contemporary legal regulation, and challenges to the rule of law in light of shifting and competing demands for new types of social solidarity.

Accessible, interdisciplinary, and socially informed this book has been revised to take into account the latest developments in jurisprudential scholarship.

About the Author:

Emilios Christodoulidis is a Professor in Legal Theory at the University of Glasgow. Lindsay Farmer is Professor of Law at the University of Glasgow. Scott Veitch is Professor of Jurisprudence and the University of Hong Kong

Review:

'Professors Veitch, Christodoulidis and Farmer have created a very modern tool here breaking from the old approaches to the book is very well described as 'accessible, interdisciplinary and socially informed' and successfully takes account of the most recent developments in current jurisprudential thought. It is just what I need to explain modern jurisprudence to the worried student!' Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers, UK

'This book is the best introduction to the study of jurisprudence I have come across. It provides students with a systematic and well-balanced approach...while also concretely illuminating the social significance of the law. The tutorials are very helpful in contextualizing the rich material presented by some of the UK’s leading contemporary legal theorists.' Hans Lindahl, Professor of Legal Philosophy, Tilburg University, The Netherlands

'A thoughtful and reflective approach; one that is not only sensible, but long overdue.' David Seymour, Lancaster University, UK

Reviews for the first edition:

'An excellent textbook. It adopts a new pedagogic approach to the teaching legal philosophy. Instead of lingering on the "old knowledge delivering" model of teaching jurisprudence...[it creates] a well defined learning environment that stimulates students critical thinking.' Vito Breda, Cardiff University, UK

'The integrated approach taken by the authors illustrates the true utility of jurisprudence – not as some dry philosophical subject, but as central to the development of legal thought in all areas of law.' John McGarry, Edge Hill University, UK
