Emile Durkheim: Law in a Moral Domainis the first full-length account in English of Durkheim's ideas on law. Radically challenging standard accounts of these ideas, it draws on a wide range of writings by Durkheim and his co-workers to present his legal thought systematically as a unified, highly original and hitherto unjustly neglected contribution to the understanding of law. Durkheim confronts issues about the moral foundations of contemporary Western law. He explains in relation to such fields as criminal, contract, property, inheritance, industrial, and family law, the values that must underpin this law, justifying these sociologically in terms of law's modern tasks and its historical development. Emile Durkheim: Law in a Moral Domainalso surveys the work of jurists who were closely involved in Durkheim's sociological project, but are little known in the common world. It shows Durkheimian legal theory as a rich, multi-faceted enterprise which, until now, has lacked proper recognition. Addressing many standard criticisms of Durkheim's sociology, Professor Cotterrell shows that some of these need substantial reconsideration in the light of Durkheim's work on law.* Accessible account of the whole of Durkheim's writing about law in society* Shows the centrality of Durkeim's legal theory to his social theory as a whole* Reveals Durkheim as a highly original and instructive theorist of law* Does not presuppose prior familiarity with Durkheim's sociology or with legal theory

Genre: Law

This book seeks to provide a fully comprehensive and systematic account of Durkheim’s legal theory. Indeed, because his writings on law and on the sociology of law are scattered throughout his work, this book is in fact the first attempt in English to provide a detailed analysis of the entirety of Durkheim’s legal thought. The author argues that for Durkheim legal questions and moral questions were ultimately inseparable—not so much because law and morality cannot be analytically disentangled (as some legal philosophers argue), as because morality is embodied in the conditions of social life, the rules for which are articulated by law. Thus, for Durkheim, the study of law was an absolutely essential and central part of the sociological enterprise. Law aspires to express the moral commitments of people living in many different kinds of relationships of community, reflecting the values of those whose life it regulates. Durkheim’s writings have a parallel aspiration: they use history, ethnography, and social theory to uncover the intricate and shifting moral foundations of law—foundations uncovered empirically by studying the social phenomena in which they reside, and by understanding the nature of those phenomena and the conditions of their being.

Robot Rules

Author: Jacob Turner

Release Date: 2018-10-29
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book explains why AI is unique, what legal and ethical problems it could cause, and how we can address them. It argues that AI is unlike any other previous technology, owing to its ability to take decisions independently and unpredictably. This gives rise to three issues: responsibility--who is liable if AI causes harm; rights--the disputed moral and pragmatic grounds for granting AI legal personality; and the ethics surrounding the decision-making of AI. The book suggests that in order to address these questions we need to develop new institutions and regulations on a cross-industry and international level. Incorporating clear explanations of complex topics, Robot Rules will appeal to a multi-disciplinary audience, from those with an interest in law, politics and philosophy, to computer programming, engineering and neuroscience.

Bentham

Author: John Rowland Dinwiddy
Publisher: Stanford University Press
ISBN: 0804745196
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Philosophy

Jeremy Bentham, the founder of utilitarianism, made a powerful impact on several major areas of thought and policy: ethics, jurisprudence, political and constitutional theory, and social and administrative reform. Yet from the start his ideas have been subject to misunderstanding and caricature. John Dinwiddy's Bentham is regarded as the best introduction to this important jurist and reformer. Dinwiddy examines the various components of Bentham's philosophy and shows how each was shaped by the radical rethinking entailed by the utilitarian approach. He also discusses interpretations of Benthamism and its contemporary significance and the controversial question of Bentham's influence on reform. Bentham is reproduced here in full together with three classic essays that deal with key issues in understanding Bentham: his conversion to political radicalism, the relations between private and public ethics, and his theory of adjudication. A new introduction and select bibliography by William Twining set the context and survey the developments in Bentham studies since the book's original publication in 1989.

Wissenschaft als Beruf

Author: Max Weber
Publisher: BoD – Books on Demand
ISBN: 9783954559053
Release Date: 2015-11-27
Genre: Philosophy

Max Webers Text geht zurück auf einen 1917 in München vor Studienanfängern gehaltenen Vortrag über die Beruf des Wissenschaftlers. Dabei weist er zunächst auf die – auch heute noch – überaus unsicheren, weil von unkalkulierbaren Zufällen abhängigen Berufsaussichten hin, um sich dann der Spezialisierung als unabdingbarer Voraussetzungen für die wissenschaftliche Arbeit zuzuwenden. Nicht zuletzt unterscheidet Weber dabei streng zwischen den exakten Naturwissenschaften und den auf Sinnfragen ausgerichteten Geisteswissenschaften, deren fortschreitende Politisierung er als schädlich ablehnt.

Wirtschaftlicher Erfolg, soziale Ordnung, politische Stabilität hängen wesentlich von deren Zusammenspiel ab. Die Steuerung gesellschaftlicher Prozesse setzt daher ein Verstehen der Dynamiken zwischen offenen Märkten und sozialen Institutionen voraus. Im Band werden die Spannungen zwischen demokratischer Selbstbestimmung und wirtschaftlicher Eigendynamik analysiert.
