Research Handbook on Law and Emotion Summary

Research Handbook on Law and Emotion by Susan A. Bandes

This illuminating Research Handbook analyses the role that emotions play, and ought to play, in legal reasoning and practice, rejecting the simplistic distinction between reason and emotion.

International expert contributors take multidisciplinary approaches, drawing on neuroscience, philosophy, literary theory, psychology, history, and sociology to examine the role of a wide range of emotions across a variety of legal contexts. Chapters consider how the rich tapestry of human emotion impacts legal actors, influences legal doctrine, and shapes the dynamics of legal institutions. Moving beyond legal contexts traditionally considered rife with emotion such as the criminal law and jury trials, the Handbook explores how emotion relates to contracts, property, bankruptcy, international law, and truth and reconciliation commissions. It also reflects on the importance of research methodologies, theories, and techniques for assessing the role of emotion in the legal arena.

Surveying the depth and complexity of law and emotion across a panoply of legal actions, institutional contexts, and legal doctrines, this Handbook will be critical reading for academics and students of legal theory and legal philosophy. Its detailed examination of emotions in the practice of private, public, international, and criminal law will also be beneficial for legal officials and practitioners.

Research Handbook on Law and Emotion Reviews

'It's high time that we appreciate the importance for law of emotions, like anger, disgust or empathy. Should law embrace emotion as inevitable, or discourage it for warping judgments and hampering fairness? The editors have gathered an impressive interdisciplinary range of perspectives on this flourishing field. Their superb collection of contributors reveal the importance of emotion not only in criminal law, but in bankruptcy, evidence, international law and other arenas. The power of emotion matters not only for juries, but for judges, legal educators and legislators. The Research Handbook of Law and Emotion is an innovative and thoughtful contribution that brings order to a complex unruly field.'
