Historicising legal theory

Chapter


Abstract


  • This seems like another rather odd way to introduce a chapter that is

    supposed to be about historicising legal theory, whatever that is. Yet it is precisely

    everything about this chapter and its place in this book. OK, so you might think

    that history has something to do with legal theory and that that is something

    completely different. You might think that legal theory is completely different

    from law - if so, we clearly have some way to go in this book. In this chapter we

    invite you to experience a very different way into thinking legally, immersing you

    into the known and the unknown, in order to find out how much our non-legal

    worlds - our NLDBs - affect legal interpretation and legal thinking. And that is

    something completely different from anything you would possibly expect from a

    book about legal theory, even an extravert one like this.
