Originally published: London: K. Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co., Ltd., [1946]. viii, 391 pp. This interesting work offers a sociological and ethnographic perspective on Kelsen's juristic thinking. His central thesis, which ranges over the history of humanity, argues that the idea of causality developed from primitive ideas of retribution. He shows how early man developed his interpretation of nature through the laws of retribution and causality, then developed our current concept of nature and society over time. He holds that the gradual emancipation of the law of causality from the principle of retribution is "the emancipation from a social interpretation of nature," a process "very important from the point of view of intellectual history." (Introduction viii). Society and Nature was originally published in 1943 to mixed reviews. It deserves a fresh appraisal for its original ideas and insights into his theory of pure positive law outlined in his General Theory of Law and State and Pure Theory of Law, both available in reprint editions by The Lawbook Exchange.

Book Description Lawbook Exchange, Ltd., 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Annotated edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The influential jurist Hans Kelsen [1881-1973] here applies his concept of the distinction between society and nature. He shows how primitive man developed his interpretation of nature, through the laws of retribution and of causality, to a modern concept of nature and society. He holds that the gradual emancipation of the law of causality from the principle of retribution is the emancipation from a social interpretation of nature. The process shows a relation between social and natural science which is very important from the point of view of intellectual history. (Introduction p. viii) Extensively annotated. Kelsen is known for his theory of pure positive law, as postulated in General Theory of Law and State, which is also available in a reprint edition from The Lawbook Exchange.
