Hans Kelsen and Max Weber: Convergences and Divergences in Conceptions of the
Juridico-Political

This interdisciplinary, mini-Conference represents the first sustained
examination of the relationship between Hans Kelsen and Max Weber’s work in the
UK.  The examination will centre upon the concept of the juridico-political, and
will be structured by three main paths of reflection; Kelsen, Weber and
Neo-Kantianism (path I); Kelsen/Freud and Weber/Nietzsche (path II) and the
theories of Kelsen and Weber as interventions within the modern
juridico-political system (path III).  The Conference papers will be given by a
mixture of European and North American experts on the work of Kelsen and
Weber

This mini-conference will primarily be of interest to UK academics whose
research relates to the fields of legal theory, sociology, philosophy and social
and political theory.
