Studies in Emergent Order is proud to publish a symposium on Professor Gary Chartier’s Anarchy and Legal Order. Dr. Chartier’s book explores how law can exist in stateless societies, how law in stateless societies can promote peaceful, voluntary cooperation, and why the existence of the state harms this cooperation from an anti-capitalist perspective.
This symposium features scholarly commentary and analysis on Dr. Chartier’s book from a variety of scholars (including Jonathan Crowe, Jason Brennan, and Aeon Skoble), as well as Dr. Chartier’s response to the issues raised by the contributors. Studies in Emergent Order is pleased that this symposium serves as an important edition to the literature on the philosophy of law and anarchy.
Studies in Emergent Order (SIEO) is an open-access journal dedicated to fostering research, discussion and publication concerning the roles played by and implications of emergent order phenomena, particularly in society but not excluding other areas.
