Burri on International Law and David Foster Wallace's "Infinite Jest" @HSGStGallen

Thomas Burri, University of St. Gallen, has published International Law, Infinite Jest. Here is the abstract.
This short paper shows how international law mirrors David Foster Wallace's "Infinite Jest". While it should generally be of interest to both international lawyers and aficionados of "Infinite Jest", hopefully it also satisfies an urge we all sometimes feel when coping with the rigid rules of our professional discipline: the urge to smile for fear of losing our sanity.
Notes: (The paper is based on an essay written in German for a Festschrift for Daniel Thuerer.) Download the essay from SSRN at the link.
