Argument

The Maison française d’Oxford in co-operation with the Kent Centre for European and Comparative Law is organizing a critical and interdisciplinary workshop entitled ‘Law’s Hermeneutics: Other Investigations’ to take place in Oxford on 5-6 June 2015. The aim of this workshop, which will be open to the public, whether lawyers or non-lawyers, is to gather approximately 10 leading academics hailing from different scholarly and cultural horizons with a view to revisiting legal hermeneutics by making particular reference to philosophy, linguistics and translation studies. On the assumption that other disciplines have much to teach legal theory, the writings of such intellectuals as Hans-Georg Gadamer, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Paul Ricœur and Ludwig Wittgenstein will receive special consideration. As it explores the matter of reading the law and as it inquires into the emergence of meaning within the dynamic between reader and text against the background of the reader’s worldly finiteness, the workshop wishes to contribute to an improved appreciation of the merits and limits of law’s hermeneutics which, it argues, is emphatically not to be reduced to a simple tool for textual exegesis. In this regard, the workshop purports to supplement and update the body of work to be found in such texts as Gregory Leyh (ed.), Legal Hermeneutics (University of California Press, 1992) and Marcel Senn & Barbara Fritschi (eds), Rechtswissenschaft und Hermeneutik (F. Steiner Verlag, 2009)
