In this influential and oft-cited study Ross discounted thetheories of natural law, positivism and legal realism. Intheir stead, he proposed the abandonment of"ought-propositions" for the "is-propositions" employed byother empirical sciences, thereby envisioning lawyers thatserve merely as "rational technologists". Less bound bytradition, and traditional notions of justice, jurisprudencethen becomes "not only a beautiful mental activity per se,but also an instrument which may benefit any lawyer whowants to understand what he is doing and why" (Preface).Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
