A theory of legal argumentation : the theory of rational discourse as theory of legal justification by Robert Alexy( Book )

110 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is to be understood by 'rational legal argument'? To what extent can legal reasoning be rational? Is the demand for rationality in legal affairs justified? And what are the criteria of rationality in legal reasoning? The answer to these questions is not only of interest to legal theorists and philosophers of law. They are pressing issues for practising lawyers, and a matter of concern for every citizen active in the public arena. Not only the standing of academic law as a scientific discipline, but also the legitimacy of judicial decisions depends on the possibility of rational legal argumentation. A theory of legal reasoning which tries to answer these questions pre-supposes a theory of general practical reasoning. This theory is the subject matter of the first two parts of the book. The result is a theory of general practical discourse which rests on insights of both Anglo-Saxon and German philosophy. It forms the basis of the theory of rational legal discourse, which is developed in the third part of this book. Readership: Academics in the field of legal philosophy

Theorie der Grundrechte by Robert Alexy( Book )

Alexy unternimmt es, unter Berücksichtigung vor allem der Rechtsprechung des Bundesverfassungsgerichts eine allgemeine Theorie der Grundrechte des Grundgesetzes zu entwickeln. Ihre Kernstücke sind eine Prinzipientheorie und eine Theorie der Struktur subjektiver Rechte. Die Prinzipientheorie ist eine von unhaltbaren Annahmen gereinigte Werttheorie. Die Theorie der Struktur subjektiver Rechte macht die vielfältigen grundrechtlichen Verhältnisse exakt konstruierbar. Auf dieser Basis werden Hauptprobleme der Grundrechtsdogmatik behandelt.

Law, rights and discourse : the legal philosophy of Robert Alexy by George Pavlakos( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A philosophical system is not what one would expect to find in the work of a contemporary legal thinker. Robert Alexy's work counts as a striking exception. Over the past 28 years, Alexy has been developing, with remarkable clarity and consistency, a systematic philosophy covering most of the key areas of legal philosophy. Kantian in its inspiration, his work admirably combines the rigour of analytical philosophy with a repertoire of humanitarian ideals reflecting the tradition of the Geisteswissenschaften, rendering it one of the most far-reaching and influential legal philosophies in our time. This volume has been designed with two foci in mind: the first is to reflect the breadth of Alexy's philosophical system, as well as the varieties of jurisprudential and philosophical scholarship in the last three decades on which his work has had an impact. The second objective is to provide for a critical exchange between Alexy and a number of specialists in the field, with an eye to identifying new areas of inquiry and offering a new impetus to the discourse theory of law. To that extent, it was thought that a critical exchange such as the one undertaken here would most appropriately reflect the discursive and critical character of Robert Alexy's work. The volume is divided into four parts, each dealing with a key area of Alexy's contribution. A final section brings together concise answers by Robert Alexy. In composing these, Alexy has tried to focus on points and criticisms that address new aspects of discourse theory or otherwise point the way to future developments and applications. With its range of topics of coverage, the number of specialists it engages and the originality of the answers it provides, this collection will become a standard work of reference for anyone working in legal theory in general and the discourse theory of law in particular
