9781849464963: Forms Liberate: Reclaiming the Jurisprudence of Lon L Fuller

Lon L. Fuller's account of what he termed 'the internal morality of law' is widely accepted as the classic 20th-century statement of the principles of the rule of law. What is much less accepted is his claim that a necessary connection between law and morality manifests in these principles. As a result, Fuller's jurisprudence continues to occupy a marginal place in a field dominated by H.L.A. Hart's legal positivism and Ronald Dworkin's interpretive theory of adjudication. Forms Liberate - now available in paperback - offers a close textual analysis of Fuller's published writings and working papers to dispute this prevailing assessment of his contribution. Fuller's claims about law and morality belong to a wider exploration of the ways in which the form of law introduces meaningful limits to lawgiving power through its connection to human agency. By reading Fuller on his own terms, Forms Liberate demonstrates why his challenge to a purely instrumental conception of law remains salient for 21st-century legal scholarship. Forms Liberate: Reclaiming the Jurisprudence of Lon L. Fuller won the second prize in the Society of Legal Scholars Birks Prize for Outstanding Legal Scholarship, 2012

About the Author:

Kristen Rundle is a Lecturer in Law at the London School of Economics.

Review:

There is much of interest in this book for any legal philosopher. It is good to see the various elements of Fuller's work brought together as a larger interconnected project; and the interweaving of published and unpublished materials is a useful aid to deeper appreciation and understanding. (T.R.S. Allan The Cambridge Law Journal Volume 72, No. 3)

Rundle has written a beautiful book about the 'jurisprudence' of Fuller. This was to be expected for those who were already familiar with her work.
(Translated from the original Dutch) (Thomas Mertens Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy Volume 1)

...a highly informative and thought-provoking book, rich in detail, sensitivity and rigour. It succeeds admirably in its aim to re-orientate our understandings of Fuller's thinking, and leaves the reader with the desire to revisit and reflect anew on his central concerns. (Sean Coyle Jotwell: The Journal of Things We Like (Lots))

In her thoughtful and elegantly written book Forms Liberate, Kristen Rundle offers a host of valuable insights into Lon L Fuller's theory of law and its place within modern jurisprudential thought. (Noam Gur Jurisprudence (Review Symposium), Volume 5, Issue 1)

In a rigorous, beautifully written and carefully designed monograph, Rundle draws on both Fuller's published works and archival material to reconstruct a number of Fuller's theses whose interest lies not just in their historical significance but also, and indeed primarily, in the role they can play in the contemporary debate in the philosophy of law. (Stefano Bertea Jurisprudence (Review Symposium), Volume 5, Issue 1)

Rundle successfully reclaims Fuller from the distorted picture that arose in the wake of the Hart-Fuller debate and argues for taking the form of law seriously. (Wibren van der Burg University of Toronto Law Journal, Volume 64, Issue 5)
