These essays develop a readable, coherent historical and theoretical perspective about problems of proof, evidence, and inferential reasoning in law.

This revised and enlarged edition includes a revised introduction, the best-known essays in the first edition, and chapters on narrative and argumentation, teaching evidence, and evidence as a multi-disciplinary subject.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/21463199<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"History<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/21463199#Series\/law_in_context<\/a>> ; # Law in context<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/21463199#CreativeWork\/rethinking_evidence<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Rethinking evidence : exploratory essays<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"967414382<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/doi.org\/10.1017\/CBO9780511617249<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780511617249<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780521675376<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/dx.doi.org\/10.1017\/CBO9780511617249<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/967414382<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
