Judicial decision-making: Artificio Razionalità Valori

Valeria Giordano, Peter Langford

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


I enclose the abstract for Judicial decision-making: Artificio Razionalità Valori below, as requested: The book consists of a series of interventions and reflections upon the position and orientation of legal theory in relation to the contemporary transformations in the character and dynamics of law and the methodology of legal theory. It focuses, in particular, upon the emergence of the phenomenon of transnational law and the concomitant effect upon both the primacy of the juridical framework of a national constitution and the position of judicial decision-making. This focus is combined with critical reflection upon the methodological foundations of contemporary legal theory. The critical reflection, guided by the notions of artificiality, reason and values, offers an analysis of the central questions and aporias which arise in the process of construction of a theory of law and judicial decision-making.
