Part of the Economic and Financial Law & Policy – Shifting Insights & Values book series (EFLP, volume 4)


Since self-criticism (the reflection upon and the criticism of self) is an unavoidable undertaking when involved with Critical Legal Studies, the fourth chapter of the first part of this monograph is a confession in regards to the author’s starting points (linguistic framework, philosophical presuppositions and political preferences). Specifically, it builds upon the point of view expressed in the introduction to part one of how human knowledge is not capable of detaching itself from the lived experiences out of which genuine subjectivity emerges, and, as such, how any scholar is inevitably part of the society and social order that he or she studies (a limitation).
