This book discusses whether criminal law theory, or in more general terms, general law theory can be
regarded as a branch of science. The issues addressed in this book are following: Is the criminal law
scholarship which obviously informs the legal system itself a form of science, and in what sense? Can
there be systemic developments in criminal law theory?
The issues concerning the nature of the knowledge of criminal law in the core areas of the field are of
course closely linked with issues concerning what legal science is more generally about. A reflective
discussion in the field of criminal law on these issues may contribute to the general discussions in legal
theory, and also it serves the interest of understanding where criminal law theory stands when legal
research is increasingly faced with challenges of interdisciplinarity.
