    In his recent book, Law’s Rule, The Nature, Value, and Viability of the Rule of Law, Gerald J. Postema argues that the exponential growth in the power and reach of artificial intelligence poses a unique challenge to the rule of law as AI and machine learning have the potential to replace law in various areas of society. AI's unique mode of reasoning and design for social control sharply contrasts with traditional beliefs about the nature of law. Algorithmic governance eliminates legal reasoning, judgment, reflection, interpersonal engagement, and personal decision-making responsibility. The potential loss of value to individuals and political communities must be considered if AI replaces law in a significant portion of political and personal spheres.
