Description

Twelve years have passed since the publication of the 1962 edition of this textbook. During this time there have occurred significant developments in analytic jurisprudence and in the legal philosophy of values which have received recognition in additions to the historical part of this volume. The second and central part of this book, dealing with the nature and functions of law, has been largely rewritten. More extensive consideration than in the previous edition has been given in particular to the psychological roots of the law, the conceptual scope and substantive components of the notion of justice, and the criteria for validity of the law. Less comprehensive were the revisions in the third part of the book, concerned with problems of legal method. The section on legal logic was replaced by a more differentiated analysis of the modes of legal reasoning, which in turn made necessary a reappraisal of the role of value judgments in the adjudicatory process. Throughout this revised edition, reference has been made to important books and article in the field which have appeared since the publication of the 1962 edition.
