Objectivity in Law

Synopsis

This book addresses a central topic in contemporary jurisprudence, namely, whether it is possible for legal interpretations to be objective. The author argues that objectivity is possible in law, and grounds this possibility firmly in metaphysics, philosophy of mind and language, and meta-ethics. He then systematically explores the philosophical prejudices that have operated as sources of resistance to this possibility. These prejudices, once identified, help to illuminate fundamental debates in jurisprudence.
