Critical Legal Theory and the Challenge of Feminism provides both a thorough overview and a refinement of the ideas that underlie critical legal theory. Arguing with the rigor of analytic philosophy and the alertness to paradoxes characteristic of deconstructive philosophy, Matthew Kramer begins by exploring the tangled relations between metaphysics and politics. He then attempts to transform the discourses of the critical legal studies movement by laying out a framework of five general themes: contradictions, contingency, patterning, perspective, and ideology. Kramer calls for a more sophisticated awareness of their paradoxes, explaining why the paradoxes are by no means disabling or demobilizing. Finally, Kramer explores some of feminist theory's major controversies and problems, and argues that feminist theory can profit greatly by giving due attention to inescapable paradoxes. The book is an important contribution to political philosophy, jurisprudence, feminist philosophy and metaphysics, with powerful implications for epistemology and literary theory.

About the Author:

Matthew H. Kramer is a university lecturer in jurisprudence at Cambridge University, and fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge.

Review:

. . . a meticulous elaboration of a particular view of metaphysics . . . Those who are curious as to how a metaphysics (and a legal theory and a literary theory) could 'take paradoxes seriously' are well-advised to work their way through Kramer's book. (The Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence)
