This text presents a comprehensive view of jurisprudential legal theory, providing essential perspectives on its history and on the modern legal landscape, allowing for a deeper understanding of society and our system of laws. The text surveys the full range of important jurisprudential perspectives, from natural law and legal positivism, through legal realism, to law and economics, critical legal studies, feminist legal theory, critical race theory, gay legal theory, pragmatism, postmodernism, and more. The authors have also included accessible, thought-provoking introductions for each chapter, as well as carefully curated readings and cases, with updated and amplified notes, questions, problems, and bibliographies.
