Jurisprudential Sociology

Jurisprudential Sociology

(p.105) Chapter Six Jurisprudential Sociology
Philip Selznick
Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses Selznick's thought on the sociology of law. According to Selznick, the sociology of law “may be regarded as an attempt to marshal what we know about the natural elements of social life and to bring that knowledge to bear on a consciously sustained enterprise, governed by special objectives and ideals.” His article “Sociology and Natural Law”, became the clearest and most ambitious statement of his intriguing claim that sociologists and natural lawyers shared the same jurisprudential concerns and territory—to the likely surprise and discomfort of both.
