Methodological and metaphilosophical disputes in the contemporary philosophy of law are very vivid. Basic issues remain controversial.

The purpose of the book is to confront approaches of Anglo-Saxon and continental philosophy of law to the following topics: the purpose of legal philosophy, the role of disagreement in legal philosophy, methodology of legal philosophy (conceptual analysis) and normativity of law.

We see those areas of legal metaphilosophy as drawing recently more and more attention in the literature. The authors of particular chapters are internationally recognized scholars rooted in various traditions:-

  • Anglo-Saxon (Gerald Postema, Dennis Patterson, Kenneth Ehrenberg, Veronica Rodriguez-Blanco),
  • Southern-European (Riccardo Guastini, Manuel Atienza),
  • Nordic (Torben Spaak),
  • German (Ralf Poscher) and
  • Central-European (Jan Wolenski, Tomasz Gizbert-Studnicki, Adam Dyrda).
  • They represent different approaches and different backgrounds. The purpose of the volume is to contribute to the cross-cultural discussions of fundamental issues of philosophy of law.
