Product Description

This Jurisprudence Cases and Materials casebook is organized primarily by legal concepts so that the relevance of jurisprudential concepts to legal ones is always apparent. The author first follows the basic elements of a legal claim: duty, cause, and injury. He then explores the ubiquitous derivatives of these elements: states of mind, and motive. Finally, the author focuses on interpretation, judicial "neutrality" and the impact of theories of knowledge. Jurisprudence Cases and Materials thoroughly intertwines these areas with the "substantive questions" considered earlier. Each concept will thus benefit in clarity and depth from the study of the others. The decision to end, rather than open, with interpretation and theories of knowledge, allows students to stay close to the legal issues in the most accessible form.

This book is a casebook. Using cases as a primary source for a book on jurisprudence helps make the uses of jurisprudence accessible. The cases and materials in turn provide an introduction to jurisprudence, focusing on the fundamental issues in the Anglo-American tradition as they have been affected by western philosophy. The book can easily be supplemented to yield a more advanced course, or a course delving into specialized areas of jurisprudence for which this casebook should lay an appropriate foundation.
