Diverse narratives of legal objectivity: an interdisciplinary perspective

Breda, Vito and Rodack, Lidia, eds. (2016) Diverse narratives of legal objectivity: an interdisciplinary perspective. Dia-Logos. Studies in Philosophy and Social Sciences, 19. Peter Lang, Oxford, England. ISBN 978-3-631-65343-2

Abstract

This volume presents a collection of essays on objectivity in legal discourse. Has law a distinctive type of objectivity? Is there one specific type of legal objectivity or many, depending on the observatory language utilized? Is objectivity fit for law? The analyses in the various contributions show that the Cartesian paradigm of objectivity is not relevant to the current legal discourse, and new forms of legal objectivity are revealed instead. Each essay, in its distinctive way, analyses the strong commitment of law to objectivity, shedding light on the controversies that surround it.
