Summary This book brings together the fruits of different traditions in legal philosophy and draws on them to develop a systematic thesis on the concept of law. It examines the traditions of Jrgen Habermas's critical theory and H.L.A. Hart's analytic jurisprudence to illustrate that the key to a fruitful dialogue and comprehensive understanding, is to appreciate that the concept of law is not state-centred and must reflect relationships to other legal systems
