Chapter 13: The responsibilities of the critic: law, politics and the Critical Legal Conference
The chapter tracks three phases in the intellectual development of European critical legal thinking. The first (1980s and early 1990s) was the epoch of aesthetics; the second, in the 1990s and early 2000s, was the period of ethics; the one currently underway is the epoch of politics. With a particular emphasis on the trajectory of the BritCrits, the chapter explores the complex ways in which aesthetic and ethical considerations interact with the more overtly political stances of critical legal theory today.
