Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Hans Kelsen's legal theory is not widely taught in the Analytic tradition, however this is an oversight. Kelsen presents a prescriptivist legal theory that provides a justification for a strong sense of normativity. In fact, the normativity appears to be applicable to all "social orders" or system of norms, legal, moral and otherwise. While I won't go into an exegesis of the theory here, I shall say that he discusses the famous theory of the "Basic Norm" which provides people with epistemic justification of obligations. This aspect of the theory is what sets it apart from any other legal theory I have encountered, especially among the legal positivists.

I heavily suggest this book to any jurist or legal theorist. It provides insight into how people can approach the law and make sense of the operations of the legal system.

It is great that this book has been translated to the English language.
However, some customers would prefer the German version.

This book can be hard going but if you grasp the theories and understand how they are linked with jurisprudence than you will enjoy the book.
