What is objectivity? What is the rule of law? Are the operations of legal systems objective? If so, in what ways and to what degrees are they objective? Does anything of importance depend on the objectivity of law? These are some of the principal questions addressed by Matthew H. Kramer in this lucid and wide-ranging study that introduces readers to vital areas of philosophical enquiry. As Kramer shows, objectivity and the rule of law are complicated phenomena, each comprising a number of distinct though overlapping dimensions. Although the connections between objectivity and the rule of law are intimate, they are also densely multi-faceted.

  • Clearly written with non-experts in mind by one of the foremost contemporary legal philosophers
  • Addresses problems that are not only of philosophical interest but also of practical importance
  • Philosophically rigorous, in the manner of the analytic tradition of philosophy

1. Dimensions of objectivity
2. Elements of the rule of law
3. Objectivity and law’s moral authority.
