Taking up a single question - ""What does it mean to say a proposition of law is true?"" - this book seeks to advance an account of truth in law. Drawing upon the later philosophy of Wittgenstein, as well as more recent postmodern theory of the relationship between language, meaning and the world, Dennis Patterson examines leading contemporary jurisprudential approaches to this question and finds them flawed in similar ways. He offers an alternative account of legal justification, one in which linguistic practice - the use of forms of legal argument - holds the key to legal meaning.;This book is intended for philosophers and legal scholars.
