Zarys wykładu

In contrast to most positions in legal methodology, a careful analytical reconstruction of legal hermeneutics reveals that the doctrinal development of the law can be specifically legal, even in cases of legal indeterminacy. Phenomenologically speaking, modern Western legal systems have embraced this theoretical possibility and established a sphere of legal argumentation that is, to some degree, autonomous from other areas of knowledge and discourse. Early legal sociologists and kindred spirits of Leon Petrażycki, such as Eugen Ehrlich or François Gény, were exasperated by this characteristic of modern legal systems. Instead of relying on arcane doctrinal arguments, they recommended resorting to sociological findings or economic insights to develop the law in cases of legal indeterminacy. On the one hand, this talk will show that the bewilderment of these early socio-legal scholars was well founded; on the other hand, it will offer an explanation for this astounding feature of modern legal systems in the context of social differentiation.
