In this text, Paul Campos argues that the American worship of law and legality can at times become so pathological that it comes to resemble a type of legal madness, or ""Jurismania"". Campos offers an intensely critical look at the role of law and legal reason in American society, and concludes that much of what is called the rule of law resembles a culturally sanctioned form of obsessive-compulsive behaviour.
