Legal Directives and Practical Reasons

Noam Gur

  • A fresh take on a central problem in jurisprudence: how law interacts with practical reasons
  • Evaluates contending theories and puts forward an alternative model - one that centers on reasons to adopt and cultivate desirable attitudes and dispositions towards the law
  • Adopts a methodologically broad perspective that engages with interdisciplinary themes, such as cognitive biases in decision-making, social attitudes towards law, and common motivations for compliance with the law
