Sovereignty, Knowledge, Law investigates the notion of sovereignty from three different, but related perspectives: as a legal question in relation to the sovereign state, as a political question in relation to sovereign power, and as a metaphysical question in relation to sovereign self-knowledge. The varied and interchangeable uses of legal sovereignty, political sovereignty and metaphysical sovereignty in contemporary debates have resulted in a situation where the word ‘sovereignty’ itself has become something of a non-concept. Panu Minkkinen shows here how these three perspectives have informed one another, by addressing their shared relationship to law, and to the ‘autocephalous’ function of sovereignty; that is, the attempt to provide a single source and foundation for law, power, and self-knowledge. Through an effort to domesticate the intrinsically ‘heterocephalous’ nature of power, the juridical and jurisprudential aim has been to confine power within the closed vertical hierarchy of traditional legal thinking. Sovereignty, Knowledge, Law thus elaborates this heterocephaly, proposing new understandings of sovereignty, as well as of law and of legal scholarship.

About the Author:

Panu Minkkinen is Professor of Law at the University of Leicester and Adjunct Professor of Legal Theory at the University of Helsinki.

Review:

"...one of the (many) fruitful lessons Minkkinen’s book teaches is the irreducible diversity of sovereignty in all its many guises. In all, Minkkinen’s command of the philosophical and jurisprudential sources marshalled here is impressive and this makes for a book well worth the effort exacted in reading and re-reading." - Ben Golder, University of New South Wales; Law, Culture and the Humanities, Volume 6, No. 3, October 2010
