This short talk outlines a vision of the techniques and governing dispositions of philosophical jurisprudence. Philosophical jurisprudence is a key partner in the enterprise of General Jurisprudence that brings many forms of rational inquiry together to deepen human understanding of the law and its place in the social and political lives of human beings. This partner is fundamentally discursive, seeks comprehensive explanations of law, seeks continuities and illuminating similarities among apparently disparate phenomena, and is constitutionally self-critical and historical. It is also fundamentally sociable—i.e., intellectually extroverted and oriented toward engagement.
