Abstract

The interview is part of a book dedicated to the core aspects of Professor Gerald Postema's contribution to jurisprudence. He revises in the interview some of his general views about the nature of law and legal philosophy, as well as the role of history in the assessment of legal concepts and his insightful criticism on analytical jurisprudence. Furthermore, he discusses critically his own contribution to legal theory and his gradual move from a defense of conventionalism to a more historical and integrity-based jurisprudence.

Keywords: Philosophy of Law; Gerald Postema; Rule of Law; Concept of Law
