Justifying Judgement reconsiders the relationship between legal and political philosophy, showing that the former is incomplete without the latter. Taking the problem of how to solve difficult cases as his point of departure, Vincent Samar demonstrates the inherent incompleteness of conventional theories of law. He reviews the current state of legal and political theory and advances a metatheory for law that would enable judges to decide such cases by drawing upon the best available theory of politics appropriate to the case's level of abstraction.
