  4. Technology and the Trajectory of Myth

    Technology and the Trajectory of Myth

    David Grant, Lyria Bennett Moses
    This book presents an entirely new way of understanding technology, as the successor to the dominant ideologies that have underpinned the thought and practices of the Western world. Like the preceding ideologies of Deity, State and Market, technology displays the features of a modern myth, promising to deal with our existential concerns on condition of our subjection to them. Utilising robust empirical evidence, Lyria Bennett Moses and David Grant argue that the pathway out of this mythological maze is the production of means to establish a new sense of political, corporate and personal self-responsibility.

  6. Legal Conversation as Signifier

    Legal Conversation as Signifier

    Jan M. Broekman, Frank Fleerackers
    Conversation and argument concerning laws and legal situations take place throughout society and at all levels, yet the language of these conversations differs greatly from that of the courtroom. This insightful book considers the gap between everyday discussion about law and the artificial, technical language developed by lawyers, judges and other legal specialists. In doing so, it explores the intriguing possibilities for future synthesis, a problem often neglected by legal theory. Learn More

  7. The Normative Foundations of European Competition Law

    The Normative Foundations of European Competition Law

    Oles Andriychuk
    Does competitive process constitute an autonomous societal value or is it a means for achieving more meritorious goals: welfare, growth, integration, and innovation? The hypothesis of The Normative Foundations of European Competition Law is that the former is the case. This insightful book analyses the phenomenon of competition from philosophical, legal and economic perspectives demonstrating exactly why competitive process should not be viewed only as an instrument. It consolidates various normative theories of freedom, market and competition, and explains how exactly they can be operationalized effectively in the matrix of the EU competition policy. Learn More

    Grounds of the Immaterial

    Niels van Dijk

In doing so, it provides extensive ethnographies of the courts and law firms, and tackles classical questions in legal doctrine about the immaterial nature of intellectual property rights from a thoroughly new perspective.

  9. Form in Intellectual Property Law

    Form in Intellectual Property Law

    David Booton
    This book sets out to expose, analyse and evaluate the conflicting conceptions of legal judgment that operate in intellectual property law.

Through an exploration of form, the analysis sets out to provide insights into how intellectual property law achieves a balance between various competing interests. Learn More

Thomas More’s Utopia (1516) re-thought everything in another difficult new world. Philip Allott’s Eutopia (2016) reclaims the best of human thought to empower us in making a better human world.
