Forthcoming in February 2012 at Oxford University Press is  Institutionalized Reason – The Jurisprudence of Robert Alexy, Edited by Professor Dr. Matthias Klatt. This volume brings together leading figures from Anglo-American and German legal philosophy and constitutional theory to examine themes from the influential work of Robert Alexy.  The topics covered include the nature of law and legal reasoning, and the nature of constitutional rights. The focus across the contributions is on Alexy’s main pre-occupations – his anti-positivist views on the nature of law, his approach to the nature of legal reasoning, and his understanding of constitutional rights as legal principles. In an extended response to the contributions in the volume, Alexy develops his views on these central issues. The volume’s juxtaposition of Anglo-American and German perspectives brings into focus the differences as well as the prospect of cross-fertilization between Continental and Anglo-American work in jurisprudence.
