Philosophy, Law and Society (A Multi-Disciplinary Approach)

Full Text PDF


Philosophy does not solve problems related to other disciplines alone as Winch, P. (1958:4) believes or as others might think, there are philosophical problems too irrespective of the position of Ludwig Wittgenstein. Karl Popper (1952:129) declared:My own view of the matter is that only as long as I have genuine philosophical problems to solve shall I continue to take an interest in philosophy. I fail to understand the attraction of a philosophy without problems.
