Playing by the Rules

A Philosophical Examination of Rule-Based Decision-Making in Law and in Life

Frederick Schauer

Clarendon Law Series

  • A philosophical but non-technical analysis of the very idea of a rule
  • Challenges much of the existing legal, jurisprudential, and philosophical literature, by seeing a significant role for rules, an equally significant role for their stricter operation, and making the case for rules as devices for the allocation of power among decision-makers
