Legal positivism is one of the fundamental theories of law. What does it submit?
Why it is relevant? What are its fundamental ideas, its history and major
theorists? How does it relate to justice and ethics? The editors present the
thirty-three chapters composing the volume and discuss the current
developments and influence of legal positivism, as well as on criticisms moved
against it.
