In recent years, coherence theories of law and adjudication have been extremely influential in legal scholarship. These theories significantly advance the case for coherentism in law. Nonetheless, in the field of coherence theory in law, a number of problems remain. This ambitious new study develops a coherence-based theory of legal reasoning and, in so doing, addresses or at least mitigates these problems. The book is organized in three parts. The first part provides a critical analysis of the main coherentist approaches to both normative and factual reasoning in law. The second part investigates coherence theory in a number of fields that are relevant to law: coherence theories of epistemic justification * coherentist approaches to belief revision and theory-choice * coherence theories of practical and moral reasoning * coherence-based approaches to discourse interpretation. Taking this interdisciplinary analysis as a starting point, the third part of the book develops a coherence-based model of legal reasoning. While this model builds upon the standard theory of legal reasoning, it also leads to rethinking some of the basic assumptions that characterize this theory and suggests some lines along which it may be further developed. Thus, ultimately, the book not only improves upon the current state of coherence theory in law, but also contributes to the larger debate about how to articulate a theory of legal reasoning that results in better decision-making. Revised dissertation. (Series: European Academy of Legal Theory, Vol. 12) [Subject: Legal Theory]

About the Author:

Amalia Amaya is Research Fellow in the Institute of Philosophical Research at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

Review:

The conceptual relationship between justice and coherence makes the examination of the latter a pressing need... Amaya features extensive and in depth critical analysis of the issue under discussion... Undoubtedly, legal theorists have much to learn from Amaya's monograph. -- Dr Kyriakos N Kotsoglou, Liverpool Hope University * ARSP: Archiv fur Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie *
