Legal Theory

Work in this area centers on the evolution of law from explanatory as well as normative viewpoints. The explanatory work focuses on a general theory of the nature and evolution of law in high complexity societies. Normatively, projects in this are area offer a vision for the future of law that connects legal evolution to that of human endowments to endure, self-bind, individuate, reason, connect, create, communicate, and plan. Linking these two powerful vectors in human history – law and human endowments – the work moves from a novel reconstruction of the past of law and legal thought to imagining their future.
