Justice Miscarried: Ethics and Aesthetics in Law by Costas Douzinas


pdf epub fb2 djvu



Reopens the law-ethics debate from a postmodern perspective and calls for a radical assessment of the relationship between law and morality. This incorporates an analysis of the failure of the law to deliver its promise of justice and argues that only by taking seriously a philosophy of otherness can the law be transformed into an acceptable ethical basis of social communication; otherwise, it will remain divorced from ethics and its decline into amoral technocratic management will continue. Readers interested in Cultural, Legal and Social and Political Theory.
