Law, Language, and Legal Determinacy

Brian Bix


This book discusses the role of language within law, and the role of philosophy of language in understanding the nature of law. The book argues that the major re-thinking of the common and ‘common sense’ views about law that have been proposed by various recent legal theorists are unnecessary.

Keywords: law, language, legal theorists, philosophy of language
