Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. Is the science of moral cognition usefully modeled on aspects of Universal Grammar? Are human beings born with an innate ''moral grammar'' that causes them to analyze human action in terms of its moral structure, with just as little awareness as they analyze human speech in terms of its grammatical structure? Questions like these have been at the forefront of moral psychology ever since John Mikhail revived them in his influential work on the linguistic analogy and its implications for

Entextualizing Domestic Violence: Language Ideology and Violence Against Women in the Anglo-American Hearsay Principle (Oxford Studies in Language and Law)
By Oxford University Press
mpn: 9780190225834, ean: 9780190225834, isbn: 0190225831,
Language ideology is a concept developed in linguistic anthropology to explain the ways in which ideas about the definition and functions of language can become linked with social discourses and identities. In Entextualizing Domestic Violence, Jennifer Andrus demonstrates how language ideologies that are circulated in the Anglo-American law of evidence draw on and create indexical links to social discourses, affecting speakers whose utterances are used as evidence in legal situations. Andrus

Law, Language, and Legal Determinacy (Clarendon Paperbacks)
By Clarendon Press
mpn: bibliography, ean: 9780198260509, isbn: 9780198260509,
This book discusses one of the central problems in the philosophy of law--the question of legal determinacy. Is the law a seamless web or are there gaps? Bix argues that the major re-thinking of the common and ''common sense'' views about law that have been proposed by various recent legal theories is unnecessary. He offers a reconsideration of the role of language in the law, and the way ideas about language have been used and misused in recent legal theory. He explores in depth the

Law, Truth, and Reason: A Treatise on Legal Argumentation (Law and Philosophy Library)
By Springer
mpn: 20 black & white tables, biography, ean: 9789400718715, isbn: 9400718713,
This book is an innovative contribution to analytical jurisprudence.  It is mainly based on the distinct premises of linguistic philosophy and Carnapian semantics, but also addresses the issues of institutional philosophy, social pragmatism, and legal principles as envisioned by Dworkin, among others. Wróblewski´s three ideologies (bound/free/legal and rational) and Makkonen´s three situations (isomorphic/semantically vague/normative gap) of judicial decision-making are further developed by

Legal Discourse: Studies in Linguistics, Rhetoric and Legal Analysis (Language, Discourse, Society)
By Peter Goodrich
sku: 0929-WS0801-A04281-0333515846, ean: 9780333515846, isbn: 0333515846,
Lawyers and the law have long been the object of popular criticism and satire for the obscurity and incomprehensibility of their language. Legal Discourse provides a novel historical and systematic account of the language of the legal institution together with a sustained criticism of legal exegesis and `legalese' more generally. In the first part of the work the doctrinal history of the legal discipline and its concepts of language, text and sign are examined and assessed. In the second part

Rhetorical Processes and Legal Judgments: How Language and Arguments Shape Struggles for Rights and Power
By Ingramcontent
ean: 9781107155503, isbn: 1107155509,
Over the last several decades legal scholars have plumbed law's rhetorical life. Scholars have done so under various rubrics, with law and literature being among the most fruitful venues for the exploration of law's rhetoric and the way rhetoric shapes law. Today, new approaches are shaping this exploration. Among the most important of these approaches is the turn toward history and toward what might be called an 'embedded' analysis of rhetoric in law. Historical and embedded approaches locate

Law and Language (The International Library of Essays in Law and Legal Theory (Second Series))
By Routledge
ean: 9781840147704, isbn: 1840147709,
The essays in this volume reflect several important and widely-discussed issues in legal theory. One set of issues may be characterized as legal hermeneutics, a consideration of the practices governing the retrieval and determination of meaning from legal texts and in legal contexts. Related issues arise from the use of literature and literary criticism to enhance an understanding of law and from the study of legal rhetoric..

Patterns of American Jurisprudence
By Clarendon Press
mpn: index, ean: 9780198264910, isbn: 9780198264910,
This unique study offers a comprehensive analysis of American jurisprudence from its emergence in the later stages of the nineteenth century to the present day. The author argues that it is a mistake to view American jurisprudence as a collection of movements and schools which have emerged in opposition to each other. By offering a highly original analysis of legal formalism, legal realism, policy science, process jurisprudence, law and economics, and critical legal studies, he demonstrates

Ethics and the Rule of Law
By Cambridge University Press
ean: 9780521277129, isbn: 9780521277129,
An introduction to the philosophy of law, which offers a modern and critical appraisal of all the main issues and problems. This has become a very active area in the last ten years, and one on which philosophers, legal practitioners and theorists and social scientists have tended to converge. The more abstract questions about the nature of law and its relationship to social norms and moral standards are now seen to be directly relevant to more practical and indeed pressing questions about the
