Modernism and the Grounds of Law

  • Categories: Law

Existing approaches to the relation of law and society have for a long time seen law as either autonomous or grounded in society. Drawing on untapped resources in social theory, Fitzpatrick finds law pivotally placed in and beyond modernity. Being itself of the modern, law takes impetus and identity from modern society and, through incorporating 'pre-modern' elements of savagery and the sacred, it comes to constitute that very society. When placing law in such a crucial position for modernity, Fitzpatrick ranges widely from the colonizations of the Americas, through the thought of the European Enlightenment, and engages finally with contemporary arrogations of the 'global'. By extending his previous work on the origins of modernity, this book makes a significant contribution to continuing developments in law and society, legal philosophy, and jurisprudence.

The Mythology of Modern Law is a radical reappraisal of the role of myth in modern society. Peter Fitzpatrick uses the example of law, as an integral category of modern social thought, to challenge the claims of modernity which deny the relevance of myth to modern society.

Foucault’s Law is the first book in almost fifteen years to address the question of Foucault’s position on law. Many readings of Foucault’s conception of law start from the proposition that he failed to consider the role of law in modernity, or indeed that he deliberately marginalized it. In canvassing a wealth of primary and secondary sources, Ben Golder and Peter Fitzpatrick rebut this argument. They argue that rather than marginalize law, Foucault develops a much more radical, nuanced and coherent theory of law than his critics have acknowledged. For Golder and Fitzpatrick, Foucault’s law is not the contained creature of conventional accounts, but is uncontainable and illimitable....

Wilson's Promontory, the southernmost tip of the Australian mainland, looked like the perfect place for a bushwalk. But for the strange assortment of men and women who ventured into its wild beauties that day in the summer of 1924, it all went horribly wrong. They all had their own reasons for being there. For some it was to be a testing of mind and body, for others an opportunity for romance, or at least a bit of uncomplicated sex under canvas. But love and lust were not the only passions they brought to the Promontory. Two of them would die, and all of them would be changed by the events of that week. Richard Carney, through whose eyes the story is told, sets out to find the source of the evil in this Garden; in the course of his journey, there are other things to be learned as well, about love and death, promontories, other people and himself. Promontory is many things - a love story, a murder mystery, a metaphysical novel about the spirit of place. For its readers, as for the people who took the trail, it is an unpredictable, unforgettable journey.

The Two Frank Thrings

They shared a name, of course, and their physical resemblance was startling. And both Frank Thrings were huge figures in the landscape of twentieth-century Australian theatre and film. But in many ways they could hardly have been more different. Frank Thring the father (1882–1936) began his career as a sideshow conjuror, and he wheeled, dealed and occasionally married his way into becoming the legendary ‘F.T.’ — impresario, speculator and owner of Efftee Films, Australia’s first ‘talkies’ studio. He built for himself an image of grand patriarchal respectability, a sizeable fortune, and all the makings of a dynasty. Frank Thring the son (1926–1994) squandered the fortune and d...
