5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Dean A Strang on March 17, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
James Boyd White was and is a leader in the law & literature school; of the living, he arguably is the leader. With the original, longer version of this book, he took up that role. White has the courage to present his ideas, which are fresh and sophisticated even now, 40 years after the book appeared, without cant or cloak of academic gibberish. For decades, the social sciences (microeconomics most of all, but sociology, behavioral psychology, and political science) have claimed a hold on the legal academe. That hold has gotten little critical examination. Without disrespect to the contributions of the social sciences to our understanding of law's purposes and role, still White's work beckons a revival of the values and contributions of the humanities--pursuit of truth, exploration and integration of the human experience, respect for the human being as an end, acknowledgment of virtue, measured assessment of the difference between right and wrong, appreciation of the power of rhetoric, and perhaps above all a yearning for justice--in the way that law is taught and practiced.
