    Book synopsis: In general terms, the essays of this collection address the peculiar and uncanny commonplace that doctrine is the subject of law. Their theme is the various and varied relations between law, doctrine and crime, and the predicament that has arisen from all three seemingly occupying the place of the subject of law. Furthermore, the specific situation of criminal law is examined, particularly the alleged failure so far to place its teachings and arguments within a cohesive structure that may offer greater power and authority. The essays collected here fall roughly into three parts, corresponding to the general elements of the dogmatic tradition of law, namely the questioning of address, of institution and of judgement.
