This paper criticizes Pierre Schlag's postmodern legal theory by arguing that his idealized critic exhibits the style of functioning that we commonly would attribute to a paranoid individual. The paper concludes that a dialogical model of postmodern thought inspired by Hans-Georg Gadamer's philosophical hermeneutics provides a more helpful basis for contemporary legal theory.
