This book offers a critical introduction to writings on law by key postmodern philosophers - Nietzsche, Foucault, Derrida, Lyotard, and Rorty - and articulates the strengths and weaknesses of postmodern legal theory. Postmodern Philosophy and Law bridges the gap between Anglo-American jurisprudence and postmodern theory by discussing not only traditional approaches such as natural law theory and legal positivism but also continental philosophy and critical legal studies. It is the first book to expound and critique postmodern legal theory and its ramifications for a mainstream audience of legal scholars and philosophers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Provides a skillful version of the strengths and weaknesses of the legal implications of the postmodernists under review." Law and Politics Book Review

"This book provides an admirably clear and useful overview of the legal ideas of some challenging and important thinkers." Ethics

"Under Litowitz s direction, the journey into postmodern legal theory is understandable, focused, and clear. Anyone wanting an introduction to postmodernism and legal theory should begin with this well written and engaging book. Highly recommended." Choice


"An important contribution. Litowitz offers a very readable and understandable analysis of a rather difficult group of postmodern writers and theorists. This book will be of great value to scholars as well as those who are beginning the study of legal theory and jurisprudence." Gary Minda, author of Postmodern Legal Movements: Law and Jurisprudence at Century s End
