Reviews - What do customers think about Juridical Law and Physical Law?

Short but Sweet  Apr 15, 2004
For those familiar with Torrance's thought and style of writing this book will come as no surprise. It is extremely short but packed with the typical condensed and thorough language that may take you several readings if you have never encountered his writings before. After having read through Transformation and Convergence and the Christian Frame of Mind (both of which I've found to be good starting places if you wish to jump right in since they contain essays on a variety of topics) and being familiar with Michael Polanyi's epistemology which Torrance adapts to his purposes, I could almost anticipate the basic outlines of this book. In fact, the first five or so paragraphs will give readers familiar with Torrance a good feel for the themes contained in it. Underlying much of his thought is a realist approach to the phenomena-noumena distinction which he now applies to the foundations of law. This is not a book about law, it is a book about its philosophical foundations and Torrance places examples in the book only as necessary to illuminate his broad themes. I will mention that I was quite fascinated by the interaction of Torrance's way of thinking with the phenomenon the legal world calls sociological law. Typically, this has been characterized by conservative thinkers as a "make your own rules" approach and has therefore not been considered by them in a positive light. Torrance does a good job of showing how this conception of law might, in part, fit into a Christian worldview.
