Right and Prejudice: Prolegomena to a Hermeneutical Philosophy of Law (Hardback)Jarkko Tontti (author)

Most current works in the field of legal interpretation approach problems from the point of view of analytical philosophy. In this book, however, Jarkko Tontti adopts the somewhat neglected viewpoint of continental hermeneutical philosophy, as developed by thinkers such as Gadamer, Ricoeur, Vattimo and Heidegger. This involves bringing the problems of legal interpretation to the centre of philosophical discussion and dealing with issues involving the relevance of law to other disciplines. The book then examines law as a tradition of conflicting interpretations, emphasizing temporality as a central dimension of the existence of law. In conclusion, current problems of epistemology and methodology of law are discussed, using the framework developed in the earlier sections of the book.
