Posner, Richard A. The Problematics of Moral and Legal Theory. Cambridge: The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1999. xiv, 320 pp. Cloth with dust jacket. New. $15. * The author, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, characterizes the current preoccupation with moral and constitutional theory as the latest form of legal mystification - an evasion of the real need of American law, which is for greater understanding of the social, economic, and political facts out of which great legal controversies arise.
