Legal Intellectuals in Conversation

Jules Coleman

NYU Press

This chapter presents an interview with Jules Coleman, the Wesley Newcomb Hohfeld Professor of Jurisprudence, and Professor of Philosophy at Yale University. He is recognised for his important contributions in legal philosophy and tort law theory. His main substantive law area has been torts, critiquing the economic analysis of law in general, and in particular its application to tort law. Topics covered during the interview include why he decided to be situated in a law school as opposed to a philosophy department; instructors who influenced him at CUNY-Brooklyn College; his definition of the connection between analytic philosophy and analytic jurisprudence; and the distinction between his view of Rorty versus Quine.

Keywords:   Jules Coleman, law professors, Yale University, legal philosophy, tort law, economic analysis, analytic philosophy, jurisprudence, Rorty, Quine
