    Why Jurisprudence Is Not Legal Philosophy.Roger Cotterrell - 2014 - Jurisprudence 5 (1):41-55.
    The aim of this article is to describe and defend jurisprudence as an enterprise of theorising about law that is distinct from what is now understood as legal philosophy in the Anglophone world. Jurisprudence must draw on legal philosophy but also from many other resources. It should be an open quest for juristically significant insights about law. Its purpose is to inform and guide the juristic task of making organised social regulation a valuable practice, rooted and effective in the specific (...)

    Law's Community: Legal Theory in Sociological Perspective.Roger Cotterrell - 1995 - Oxford University Press UK.
    Law's Community offers a distinctive analysis of law, identifying political and moral problems that are fundamental to contemporary legal theory. It portrays contemporary law as institutionalized doctrine, emphasizing ways in which legal modes of thought influence wider currents of understanding and belief in contemporary Western societies. Exploring relationships between law and sociology as contrasting and competing fields of knowledge, Law's Community develops ideas from social theory to identify key problems for legal development; in particular, those of restoring moral authority to (...)

    The Role of the Jurist: Reflections Around Radbruch.Roger Cotterrell - 2013 - Ratio Juris 26 (4):510-522.
    Many different kinds of professionals work with law, but often they seek to use law for particular governmental or private purposes, they focus on some specific areas or aspects of its creation, interpretation or application, or they study it for its interest judged by criteria that are given by fields of scholarly practice outside it. Is there a special significance for a role exclusively concerned with analysing, protecting and enhancing the general well-being or worth of law as a practical idea? (...)

    Common Law Approaches to the Relationship Between Law and Morality.Roger Cotterrell - 2000 - Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 3 (1):9-26.
    How are general relations of law and morality typically conceived in an environment of Anglo-saxon common law? This paper considers some classical common law methods and traditions as these have confronted and been overlaid with modern ideas of legal positivism. While classical common law treated a community and its morality as the cultural foundation of law, legal positivism's analytical separation of law and morals, allied with liberal approaches to legal regulation, have made the relationship of legal and moral principles more (...)

  8. Émile Durkheim: Justice, Morals and Politics.Roger Cotterrell (ed.) - 2010 - Ashgate.
    This volume focuses on three closely-connected aspects of Émile Durkheim's work: his sociology of justice, his sociology of morality and his political sociology. These areas of his thought are the most relevant and practical today in considering fundamental problems of contemporary societies and they provide many of the most important insights of his social theory. This collection presents Durkheim's thought in an unusual and revealing light and shows him as a key social and political thinker for the twenty-first century.

    The Politics of Jurisprudence Revisited: A Swedish Realist in Historical Context.Roger Cotterrell - 2015 - Ratio Juris 28 (1):1-14.
    This article argues that juristic theories must be understood in relation to the historical conditions in which they have emerged. This is not to reduce theories to their context but to gain essential insight into their aims, meaning, and scope with the aid of such “external” reference points. Here I use the ideas of the Swedish legal realist Vilhelm Lundstedt to illustrate these claims, choosing his juristic theory for this purpose specifically because it has been so widely seen as deeply (...)
