Drawing on and developing recent trends in the social sciences, The Action of Norms presents a powerful new theory of governance with far-reaching implications for the future of law, the judiciary, and justice itself. Among the contributing modern ideas that are explained and developed as pillars of the authors¿ thesis are the following:
Lenoble and Maesschalck achieve a remarkable synthesis of relevant thought about forms of social organization¿from Kant and Fichte through Hayek, Rawls, and Habermas to current theory¿and place it at the service of a new and effective theory of the norm that promises to greatly elucidate the role of law and legal practice in the continuing development of democratic institutions.
