The Gift of Science: Leibniz and the Modern Legal Tradition

by

Moving from the scientific revolution to the 19th-century rise of legal codes, Berkowitz tells the story of how lawyers and philosophers invented legal science to preserve law's claim to moral authority. He finds that the subordination of law to science actually transformed law from an ethical order into a tool for social and economic ends.
