The Eyes of Justice

Seventh Round Table on Law and Semiotics


Roberta Kevelson

The general topic of this book, miscarried justice, is suggested by the title's allusion to the sightlessness of the proverbial representation of justice. Viewpoints from several academic disciplines, e.g., philosophy, sociology, linguistics, criminal justice, literary criticism, and religious studies, are brought together with theories of law. This collection is not only interdisciplinary but cross-cultural as well. The common language is 'legal semiotics', in both a Peircean and non-Peircean idiolect. This collection is a rich, cross-referential research tool for investigators of law and semiotics in all its aspects.
