Jurisprudence and Political Philosophy in the 21 st Century

Reassessing Legacies


Edited By Miodrag A. Jovanović and Bojan Spaic

The second Yearbook of the Central East European Forum of Young Legal, Political and Social Theorists aims at reassessing some major legacies of jurisprudence and political philosophy, thereby celebrating one hundred years from the publication of the first important theoretical account of Hans Kelsen – Hauptprobleme der Staatsrechtslehre; the fifty-years anniversary of one of the most important contemporary books in legal theory – Herbert Hart’s The Concept of Law; as well as the forty-years heritage of the most influential 20th century account of justice – John Rawls’s A Theory of Justice. On this occasion fourteen scholars from Eastern and Central Europe gave their accounts and interpretations of jurisprudential and political philosophical problems that persist or emerge anew in contemporary debates.
