Objectivity and truth are highly contested issues in contemporary Legal and Moral Philosophy. There are a full range of approaches, from the very skeptic and pessimistic positions, to the most contemplative and optimistic conceptions, which defend their possibility not only within the theoretical but also within the practical thought. Any possible approach should be diverse enough in order to integrate, among others, the concepts of facts, existence, justifiability, language, emotions, disagreement, and a degree of relatedness between law and morals.
This book addresses these topics from various points of view. It is comprised of a selection of the papers presented at the Second Special Workshop "Truth and Objectivity in Law and Morals" held at the 27th World Congress of the IVR in Washington D.C., USA, 2015. The compilation is divided into four parts that focus on objectivity and truth in law, legal reasoning, and Kelsen's Theory of Law as well as objectivity and truth in morals.
