Law, Labour and the Humanities

release date: Jun 30, 2021
Law, Labour and the Humanities
The ontology of work and the economics of value underpin the legal institution, with the existence of modern law predicated upon the subject as labourer. In contemporary Europe, labour is more than a mere economic relationship. Indeed, labour occupies a central position in human existence: since the industrial revolution, it has been the principal criterion of reciprocal recognition and of universal mobilization. This multi-disciplinary volume analyses labour and its depictions in their interaction with the latest legal, socio-economic, political and artistic tendencies. Addressing such issues as deregulation, flexibility, de-industrialization, the pervasive enlargement of markets, digitization and virtual relationships, social polarisation and migratory fluxes, this volume engages with the existential role played by labour in our lives at the conjunction of law and the humanities. This book will be of interest to law students, legal philosophers, theoretical philosophers, political philosophers, social and political theorists, labour studies scholars, and literature and film scholars.

Money, Social Ontology and Law

release date: Dec 18, 2020
Money, Social Ontology and Law
Presenting legal and philosophical essays on money, this book explores the conditions according to which an object like a piece of paper, or an electronic signal, has come to be seen as having a value. Money plays a crucial role in the regulation of social relationships and their normative determination. It is thus integral to the very nature of the "social", and the question of how society is kept together by a network of agreements, conventions, exchanges, and codes. All of which must be traced down. The technologies of money discussed here by Searle, Ferraris, and Condello show how we conceive the category of the social at the intersection of individual and collective intentionality, documentality, and materiality. All of these dimensions, as the introduction to this volume demonstrates, are of vital importance for legal theory and for a whole set of legal concepts that are crucial in reflections on the relationship between law, philosophy, and society.

A Theory of Law and Literature

release date: Nov 16, 2020
A Theory of Law and Literature
In this book the authors work on an innovative comparison between law and literature, starting from the modes in which law and literature function: they read law and literature as arts of compromising.

Between Ordinary and Extraordinary

release date: Jun 28, 2018
Between Ordinary and Extraordinary
In this essay Angela Condello argues that approaching normativity in art and law from the perspective of the singular case shows the importance of interdisciplinary legal scholarship. Singularities create room for extra-legal values to emerge as legitimate demands, desires, needs
