Legality and Legitimacy

Carl Schmitt, Hans Kelsen and Hermann Heller in Weimar

David Dyzenhaus

  • This study looks at one of the oldest questions in legal philosophy--the relationship between law and legitimacy
  • The book is extremely provocative as the author analyzes and disagrees with Kelsen, one of the principal exponents of the philosophy of legal positivism
  • The author is innovative in his approach to the subject as he deals with the practical consequences of legal philosophy rather than purely abstract theory
