Brian Tamanaha Realistic Socio Legal Theory

Realistic socio-legal theory draws on philosophical pragmatism, social science philosophy and several decades of empirical studies in the fields of legal anthropology, sociology of law and political science to revisit the fundamental questions of legal theory. It articulates an epistemological and methodological basis for research in the social sciences of law and deals, inter alia, with the distinction between facts and values, the relationship between behaviorism and interpretationism, the concept of law, the constitution and diversity of legal practices, the nature of a legal system, the problem of indeterminacy and the structure of judicial decision-making. The book attempts to achieve three different goals: to better inform legal theory about the results of social law studies, to better inform social law studies about the concerns of legal theory, and, finally, to align the two areas more realistically. Based on philosophical pragmatism, Tamanaha formulates a framework for a realistic approach to social law theory. The strengths of this approach contrast with those of the great schools of social law theory in its application to fundamental questions in this field. Thus, Tamanaha examines the problematic state of social law studies, the relationship between behavior and meaning, the concept of legal ideology, the problem of vagueness in the prosecution and application of rules, and the structure of judicial decision-making. These questions are addressed in a clear and concise manner, articulating a social theory of law that draws on both legal theory and social law theory. “This book provides a useful and sometimes provocative overview of recent developments in legal theory.
