Example text

3 This conception, however, is distinctive to Cohen’s neo-Kantianism and can hardly be ascribed in toto to Rickert’s philosophy or to southwest German neo-Kantianism in general. Lask’s philosophy, marked by a basic Platonic and Neoplatonic bent, cannot be made to fall squarely within neo-Kantianism, whether it be the Baden or the Marburg variety. There is a basic doubleness with which his philosophy is imbued, for on the one hand he tends toward “things themselves,” in accordance with an ontologically oriented mode of thought, while on the other hand he cannot do without the gnosiological positions of a mode of thought at once aprioristic and to some extent subjectivistic.

The first strategy turned out to be impossible, and the second one too, or at least it proved to be very difficult. For that reason we ultimately decided to organize the discussion by country, presenting for each of them the entire history of its legal philosophy, with all of the currents of thought that have had a role in it over the course of the 20th century. The outcome of this work, organized geographically, so to speak, is laid out in the first tome of the volume. In order to offset this choice, we also decided to bring out a second tome that in a monographic fashion, beyond the geographical boundaries and fragmentation of the civil law world, would present the three main currents of thought in legal philosophy, namely, natural law theory, legal positivism, and legal realism, along with a theme in legal philosophy that has turned out to be central in the 20th century (particularly in its second half), namely, legal reasoning, ranging from the application of hermeneutics and logic to law to the other significant developments in the theory of legal argumentation.

That explains why the two parts of the exposition are so lopsided, the first (spanning from Chapter 1 to 9) being much longer than the second (developed in Chapter 10): They reflect the difference between the era of clashing worldviews and the subsequent era marked by historico-cultural transformations that can be described as somehow evolutive and not easy to pin down in any definite manner. Indeed, after 1945, the problem of legal philosophy was framed on the basis of different paradigms and perspectives: In the rebirth of natural-law theory, the problem was how to arrive at the ontological foundation of law; in language analysis, it was to “purify” law of its metaphysical nonsense; on the hermeneutical approach, it was to investigate law as a bearer of meaning; and, finally, there emerged the problem of investigating law as a tool for transforming society or as a phenomenon in a process of universalization.
