(p.197) Chapter Nine The Experimental Province of Democracy Determined
The Province of Jurisprudence Democratized

Allan C. Hutchinson

Oxford University Press

This chapter pulls together the main threads of the argument presented in the book and defends this proposed revitalization of legal theory as an adjunct location of democratic politics more generally. After tackling the contested relationship between philosophical pragmatism and political democracy, it defends strong democracy as an institutional complement to the experimentalist bent of pragmatic theorizing. It then rounds out the defense of the political province of democratic legal theory by brief reference to the literary insights of George Eliot's Middlemarch.

Keywords:   legal theory, analytical jurisprudence, political democracy, philosophical pragmatism, George Eliot, Middlemarch
