How will philosophy of law look in the 21st century? What principal concerns and central puzzles will animate future philosophers of law? What methods and resources will the next generation of legal philosophers draw and rely on? This collection answers these questions by offering 11 new, cutting-edge essays, by leading young scholars. Each chapter challenges long-held assumptions in the field, and thereby presents brand new research paradigms for the discipline. Two to three chapters are included under each of the following 5 themes: 1) methodology and metatheory 2) reasoning and evaluating 3) values and the moral life 4) institutions and the social life 5) the global and international dimension Special attention has been paid to encouraging links with other disciplines, including other areas of philosophy, as well as the social and natural sciences. A substantial introduction describes each contribution and discerns general themes that will shape the future of legal philosophy.
