Abstract

Conflicts and truth claims that occur between the epistemology of normative law science based on rational logic with the epistemology of legal sociology based on the reality of empirical law in society resulted in the science of law in Indonesia is not developing positively or can be said to have stagnated. Therefore, it is necessary to reform the epistemology of jurisprudence from other discourse, as found in a natural law based on religious revelation which touches on the substantial aspect of the spiritual-moral values of human beings as God's creatures. Basic use of epistemology of science based on revelation by the development of the era that is experiencing a multi-dimensional crisis due to the wrong way of thinking of the man himself, because it has disregarded the role of God in arranging the life of the world. The science of prophetic law based on religious revelation emerges as an exponent of a new paradigm in law science in Indonesia that carries important ideas about humanization, liberation, and transcendence.
