One of the Only, and Finest, Books on the topic... 8 août 2014
Par Let's Compare Options Preptorial - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Causation and causality have been debated for centuries in Philosophy, and there are thousands of books and articles on the topic, including some very recent articles in physics that combine ideas of Hume, Russell, etc. and posit causation as almost a "new category" of force along with space/time and matter/energy.

Given that, it is surprising that this is one of the few books dedicated to the exploration of both breadth and depth in the topic, from a legal frame. As you likely know if you're considering this text, other than strict liability and certain "automatic" sentences, mens rea, sine qua non, and causality are ubiquitous through all of law worldwide, and causation can truly be said to be at the heart of almost all case precedents that involve some type of physical end result, whether injury, accident, civil or criminal.

Another amazing thing is how much we take this for granted, in things like Summers v. Tice, "cause" of action, "show cause," "for cause..." etc.! Given that this is a 1959 book in a 2002 reprint without precedent updates, it is more foundational than current. Lexis Nexis has been buying up manuscripts and even first runs in niche topics like this to charge thousands for the most current information, and the books that do make it out with current cases are either in binder form costing over $500 US or close to that in bound form. So, will this bring you up to speed on the lastest subtleties? Absolutely not. But Oxford is the "hotbed" of causation in many areas, and the seminal material presented here is must reading.

I volunteer at Preptorial dot org for test prep, including the LSAT and postgrad exams and certifications, and we use this title extensively for the most subtle cases, problems and questions, and it is still used and cited in law schools worldwide, including the US and UK. Yes, we fill in with Lexis, but this volume, especially if you can pick up a good used copy, is a gem in saving time before filling in details online. It also gives you the philosophical AND case precedents that have lead up to our current interpretations, which is truly impressive if you need to argue a case with much more subtlety than just the newer precedents.

Do use Amazon's generous look inside to check out the topics. You'll see that this covers UK, US and Australian law extensively, with some German examples and logic, so the cases are not limited to England even though there is a distinct Oxford "scholarly" flavor to the tone. It also is written well, and is a fun read since it goes back and forth between conditionality, adequacy, and other factors that pertain to much more than the law, including fields ranging from psych to physics. Highly Recommended.

Este livro é perfeito para se entender o fenômeno da relação causal no âmbito do Direito. Os autores fazem uma abordagem histórica e, após, contextualizam o nexo causal no direito civil e penal. Excelente livro!
