Law and Philosophy
There were, I think, a lot of things wrong with German Idealism. But, in my dotage, I occasionally miss the grand aspirations and vision of philosophers such as Immanuel Kant and G.W.F. Hegel (and, long before that, Plato and Aristotle). Modern legal "theorists" -- some of them, in any event -- should have the courage to talk once again about ontology as well as epistemology. They could take their inspiration (and guts) from the AI-Folk, many of whom have not hesitated to talk about "ontologies."
