The book Philosophy of Law, Theories, Examples and Human Rights presents relevant theories, puts emphasis on the analysis of the branches of law and of basic human rights, and proposes the holistic analysis of law.

In the first part the author analyses the main elements of each theory (natural law, legal positivism, legal realism, legal formalism, legal liberalism, economic analysis of law, critical legal studies). The main philosophers of law or supporters of each theory are discussed.

In the second part of the book human rights and jurisprudence are analysed in the context of public law, criminal law (e.g., death penalty), private law and international law. The holistic analysis of law is proposed as a theory to address modern problems, such as poverty, climate change, the pandemic, and other global issues.

The book is designed  primarily for law students, teachers and supervisors.


Author: Dr. Charalampos Stamelos is a Lecturer at the European University, Cyprus Law School, and is a lawyer at the Supreme Court in Athens, Greece
