Description
Jurisprudence is one of the most fascinating areas of legal and philosophical inquiry. Concerning itself with the nature of law and legal reasoning, and with the concepts of justice and individual rights, it seeks to set legal ideas in the wider context of moral and political theory.
To study jurisprudence properly, you need to read books by such authors as Rawls, Nozick, Hart and Dworkin. It is not, or should not be, a matter of ploghing through a textbook that merely tells you about these books. Neertheless, a student needs some preliminay orientation.
This new book aims to provide a brief guide to the major theories and arguments which currently dominate discussion in jurisprudence. The object is to put the student, as qickly as possible, into a position where he or she can read the original writers with a real understanding of how their theories relate to each other, and of how these theories cluster around certain recurring fundamental issues.
CEntral Issues in Jurisprudence is not a bewildering catelogue of names, labels and "Schools of jurisprudence" justified more by tradition than by considerations of intellectual importance. Nordoes the book treat jurisprudence asa rag-bag of unrelated issues. Rather it is a "sketch-map" explaining broadly who says what and how one idea relates to another. It gies the basic geography of the subject - just enough to get the student started.
