Interdisciplinaridad y Derecho/ Interdisciplinary and Law



Bart van Klink and Sanne Taekema (ed.)
Law and Method
Interdisciplinary Research into Law

Mohr Siebeck (POLITIKA 4), Tübingen, 2011. IX, 388
ISBN 978-3-16-150676-5

This book gives an overview of the most relevant disciplines for interdisciplinary research on law. What are the characteristics of these disciplines one really needs to understand in order to do research that combines law with them? The book consists of three parts. The first part addresses general methodological questions about legal scholarship and interdisciplinary research. The second part consists of chapters exploring the relationship between law and other disciplines. The disciplines are classified in broadly three categories: empirical social science, humanities, and language-oriented disciplines. The third part contains examples of interdisciplinary research in practice: how is it done, what kinds of problems arise when doing such research, and what insights into law does it provide?
