The idea that law is fixed and unchangeable, rather than fluid and changing, is a 'basic myth' due to the law's position in the community as a father-substitute. This is the theme developed here by Mr. Frank.

    This book considers how legal theory, and particularly H. L. A Hart's The Concept of Law, has developed the idea of law as a highly developed social system, which has a distinctive character and structure, and which shapes and influences people's behaviour. The concept of law as a distinct social phenomenon is examined through reference to, and analysis of, the works of M. Author: Denis Galligan. Professor Susanna Blumenthal is a scholar of American legal history whose research and writing focuses on the historical relationship between law and the human sciences. She is the author of Law and the Modern Mind: Consciousness and Responsibility in American Legal Culture (Harvard University Press.
