In this first volume a number of philosophical inquiries have been selected, alongside contributions offering general theoretical insight into international law. The purpose is to identify general themes of discussion, such as the nature and functioning of international law, and to illustrate how philosophers and international law scholars tackle them in their respective fields of inquiry. 

In the second volume, the kaleidoscope of different contemporary theories and approaches to international law is presented. The collection is an indispensable reference for anyone interested in philosophical and theoretical investigations in international law.
