This lecture will discuss the potential & limits of the pluralist theory of the State dating back to Harold Laski in 1920s.

Then it will sweep into our new century & look at contemporary social scientists like Bruno Latour & Robert Boyer in France, as well as, legal theorists like Peer Zumbansen [York U. Toronto] & Gunther Teubner [Goethe U. Frankfurt a.M.] and their focus:

- on inter-relations between sub-system constitutions as opposed to statist constitutions;
- transnational law superseding nation-state courts; and
- the dynamics of globalized capital.
