No no no the AIME project is not finished. We got an extension from the ERC to redo the software that is behind the site -after many criticisme from users and designers- so that it is made more durable, fast and users's friendly. In the meantime the principle of edited contributions continue as before - we will be slower in answering since the staff is much reduced - and anyway the mass of documents already in line is enough to keep readers busy for quite a while. What will not resume are the face to face encounters that we have organized over the last two years for which there is no money...

Kyle McGee is a lawyer who is simultaneously a practitioner and a legal philosopher. His book about the "normativity of networks" puts to the trial the argument that Law is a mode of existence [LAW] the specificity of which can be characterized in an empirical way. But since his knowledge of law and of the philosophy of law is much larger and much deeper, his book goes much further in showing what could be drawn from an inquiry in terms of modes of existence.
