Analogy and Exemplary Reasoning in Legal Discourse
Kaptein, Hendrik (editor)
Velden, van der, Bastiaan (editor)
This book brings together contributions from leading figures in legal studies on analogy and related forms of reasoning in the law. Analogical reasoning-which relies on the concept of two different things being in some way like each other-is hugely important not just in the practice of law, but it is nonetheless strongly contested.
