The Province of Jurisprudence Democratized

Allan C. Hutchinson

Oxford University Press

This chapter offers an expansive and nuanced account of power that is more attuned to the complexities of contemporary society. After canvassing the various ways in which Austin's insights have been neglected, it explores how such a pragmatic account of power recasts the practices and problems of legal theory and law. The fact is that too much jurisprudence feigns to skate on “the frictionless ice of philosophical discourse”. In contrast, it is argued that it is only against and within a jagged process of power that the workings of law and legal theory can be best appreciated and reworked.

Keywords:   power, legal theory, Austin, analytical jurisprudence
