The second edition of the Pure Theory of Law, published in 1960, was in equal measure the culmination and the conclusion of the so-called classical phase of Hans Kelsen's legal-theoretical oeuvre. Alongside H.L.A. Hart's The Concept of Law (1961), it is the most important classic work of modern positivist jurisprudence.
