PHILOSOPHY OF LAW AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF PHILOSOPHY: Essays on the Jurisprudence of Gerald J.Postema.
Edited by Thomas Bustamante and Thiago Lopes Decat. Hart Publishing Co, Dec 2020.

This edited collection considers the work of one of the most important legal philosophers of our time, Professor Gerald J Postema. It includes contributions from expert philosophers of law. The chapters dig deep into important camps of Postema’s rich theoretical project including: the value of the rule of law; the ideal of integrity in adjudication; his works on analogical reasoning; the methodology of jurisprudence; dialogues with Ronald Dworkin, Joseph Raz, Frederick Schauer and HLA Hart.

The collection includes an original article by Professor Postema, in which he develops his conception of the rule of law and replies to some objections to previous works, and an interview in which he provides a fascinating and unique insight into his philosophy of law.

Keywords: Adjudication, Analogy, Dworkin, Hart, Integrity, Jurisprudence, Postema, Raz, Rule of Law
