Contenuto: This book describes and represents the variety of approaches currently bieng deployed in the newly-emerging field of legal semiotics.
The contributors bring to bear the insights of both the Peircian and Saussurian traditions of semiotics upon both the traditional questions of legal theory, as discussed by writers like Kelsen, Hart and Dworkin, and the analysis of contemporary legal materials.
This collection provides a valuable introduction to the history of legal semiotics, the range of approaches currently used in it, and the criticisms levelled at some forms of it as system-building insufficiently sensitive to historical and social realities.
