Edinburgh Critical Studies in Law Literature and the Humanities

  • Focuses on the importance of judging for the humanities
  • Combines legal theory and legal practice to show the importance of the bond of theory and practice in law and legal theory
  • Incorporates the findings of philosophical hermeneutics and narratology for our continued thought on the position of law and literature, and law and the humanities as interdisciplinary movements
  • Creates philosophical--hermeneutical building blocks for a methodology for the humanistic study of law as praxis
  • Reflects on interdisciplinarity in legal studies against a backdrop of the tension between the natural sciences and the humanities
