Abstract

Law and culture constitute a single interrelated entity, a basis on which our society is built, and together they provide the social rules we need to profitably interact with other human beings. In Iain M. Banks's novel The Player of Games law and culture incessantly intermingle; on one hand, the Culture's cultural rules seem to embody the best solution for a multicultural society, on the other hand the Empire of Azad's hierarchical structure strongly relies on fixed and immutable laws. What happens when these highly different systems of rules clash against each other?
