This is a gedenkshrift to one of Scotland's most prominent jurists. This book analyses in depth the distinctively Scottish themes in the life and work of Sir Neil MacCormick, the world-renowned legal philosopher and prominent Scottish public intellectual, whose life combined to a remarkable degree both academic accomplishment and political engagement in Scotland and Europe. A number of leading authors from Edinburgh and beyond reflect on his legacy and reconsider many of the questions he posed. The contributions cover the influence of MacCormick's Scottish background on his writings, his fascination with the Scottish Enlightenment, the character of law in general and the particular character of Scots law and the Scottish legal system, the place of nationalism and the prospects of independence in a post-sovereign world, and the special role of the public intellectual in Scottish life, as exemplified by MacCormick himself. The collection also contains a first comprehensive bibliography of MacCormick's writings.
