I join Bill in welcoming Chris Robinette, who will be joining us for the month of November. An Associate Professor of Law at Widener's Harrisburg campus, Chris has written extensively on tort theory. His most recent article, "Torts Rationales, Pluralism and Isiah Berlin," "argue[s] that the value pluralism of Sir Isaiah Berlin, the late English philosopher, provides the framework in which the torts rationales interact." An earlier piece, "Can There Be A Unified Theory of Torts: A Pluralist Suggestion From History and Doctrine," contends that "the attempt to unify all of torts is futile," and urges torts scholars to explore the pluralist nature of torts.
