Information om forskning och undervisning

My three published monographs revolve around a central theme.

Thinking Without Desire (Hart, 1999) attempted to show how the ‘scientific’ pursuit for knowledge that legal positivism had adopted from its neo-Kantian affiliations made a philosophy of law impossible. The only philosophical position in relation to law, the book claimed, had to be a ‘first philosophy’. The second monograph (Järjen lait, Tutkijaliitto, 2002) further explored the Kantian and neo-Kantian traditions that continue to condition legal scholarship with epistemological claims and prerequisites, while Sovereignty, Knowledge, Law (Routledge, 2009) analysed the various ways in which the notion of sovereignty has been used to prevent the scientific project from failing.

The two projects I am currently working on are spin-offs from the former.

The first continues the theme of sovereignty, but this time from a perspective that is closer to constitutional theory. It involves a ‘political constitutional theory’, informed by the work of Carl Schmitt, claiming that political constitutionalism, despite its explicit allegiance to politics, undermines that which is specifically political about constitutions. In addition to the theoretical framework, the project addresses issues such as the political tensions between the elected branches and the judiciary and the gradual shift of factual power from the legislature to the executive in contemporary liberal democracies.

The second is an attempt to reformulate and to radicalise the idea of law as a human science, as a Geisteswissenschaft, or a ‘moral science’ as John Stuart Mill would have called it.

I teach jurisprudence at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and I am heavily involved in the research training of postgraduate research students. I welcome proposals for supervision from potential research students working in my area (international students working in English are more than welcome), especially in constitutional theory and interdisciplinary research in law and political theory.
