About this product
- DescriptionAn important part of the legal domain has to do with rule-governed conduct, and is expressed by the use of tions such as rm, obligation, duty and right. These require us to ackwledge the rmative dimension of law. Normativity is, accordingly, to be regarded as a central feature of law lying at the heart of any comprehensive legal-theoretical project. The essays collected in this book are meant to further our understanding of the rmativity of law. More specifically, the book stages a thorough discussion of legal rmativity as approached from three strands of legal thought that are particularly influential and which play a key role in shaping debates on the rmative dimension of law: the theory of planning agency, legal conventionalism and the constitutivist approach. While the essays presented here do t aspire to give an exhaustive picture of these debates - an aspiration that would be, by its very nature, unrealistic - they do provide the reader with some authoritative statements of some widely discussed families of views of legal rmativity. In pursuing this objective, these essays also encourage a dialogue between different traditions of study of legal rmativity, stimulating those who would t otherwise look outside their tradition of thought to engage with new ideas and, ultimately, to arrive at a more comprehensive account of the rmativity of law.
