Unjust legality: a critique of Habermas's philosophy of law

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2001 - Law - 203 pages
This book is an interpretation and critique of Habermas's philosophy as contained in his book, Between Facts and Norms. The main argument is that while Habermas does succeed in laying out foundations, conceptual and methodological, for the philosophy of law, the book is flawed by a fundamental contradiction between a democracy ruled by law and capitalism.
