Overview

An Introduction to the Philosophy of Law by Roscoe Pound

Among books of similar scope, this is the recognized American classic. Those who read this book will have the strange privilege of thinking things together in the law from the beginning of written history to the moment Pound sent his writings to the printer. Through this writing of Pound's they can see what it is to deal with the whole objective world in the law as a freeman should, knowing how things have happened fortunately or unfortunately, logically or through some kind of hardly explicable human conduct.

About the Author

Nathan Roscoe Pound (October 27, 1870 - June 30, 1964) was a distinguished American legal scholar and educator. He was Dean of Harvard Law School from 1916 to 1936. The Journal of Legal Studies has identified Pound as one of the most cited legal scholars of the 20th century.
Roscoe Pound also made a significant contribution to jurisprudence in the tradition of sociological jurisprudence, which emphasized on the importance of social relationships in the development of law and vice versa. His best-known theory consists of conceptualising law as social engineering. According to Pound, a lawmaker acts as a social engineer by attempting to solve problems in society using law as a tool.
