The Nature of International Law (CUP 2019) by Miodrag A. Jovanović attempts to formulate a theory of international law based on the prototype theory of concepts that challenges the metaphysically driven conceptual analysis of law. In doing so, Jovanović constructs the four pillars of his prototype theory of international law: normativity, institutionalization, (coercive) guarantee, and justice-aptness.
The importance of this book for the legal-theoretical consideration of international law makes it the subject of Revus’ Symposium. The symposium has produced five contributions that critically address some of the book’s theses and Jovanović’s rejoinder.
