Sociological Aesthetics of Law
Aesthetic theory has the potential to develop a sensorium for the rational and arational forces of law. But the aesthetic knowledge of law is underdeveloped. That is why this article proposes a self-reflective sociological aesthetics of law that is capable of acknowledging human and social forces. The article unfolds its argument in three steps: first, it outlines the main approaches in the field of “law and aesthetics”; second, it connects these approaches in legal aesthetics with sociological and philosophical discussions on aesthetics; and, third, it suggests what distinctive contributions such a connection could make to jurisprudence and legal practice.
