    Book synopsis: Seeks to reopen the law-ethics debate from a postmodern perspective and calls for a radical reassessment of the relationship between family and morality. This incorporates an analysis of the failure of the law to deliver its promise of justice and argues that only by taking seriously a philosophy of otherness can the law be transformed into an acceptable ethical basis of social communication. Otherwise it will remain divorced from ethics and its decline into amoral technocratic management will continue.
