  1. Michael Steven Green (2008). Kelsen, Quietism, and the Rule of Recognition. In Matthew D. Adler & Kenneth E. Himma (eds.), THE RULE OF RECOGNITION AND THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. Oxford University Press
    Sometimes the fact that something is the law can be justified by the law. For example, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act is the law because it was enacted by Congress pursuant to the Commerce Clause. But eventually legal justification of law ends. The ultimate criteria of validity in a legal system cannot themselves be justified by law. According to H.L.A. Hart, justification of these ultimate criteria is still available, by reference to social facts concerning official acceptance - facts about what Hart calls (...)

  2. Marek Jakubiec (forthcoming). O relacji pomiędzy filozofią nauki a jurysprudencją w świetle problematyki naturalizacji prawa (On the relation between philosophy of science and jurisprudence in the context of the naturalistic approach in legal philosophy). Logos I Ethos 2 (2014).
    The paper concerns the relation betwen contemporary jurisprudence and philosophy of science. Nowadays, naturalistic approach to law seems to be really important. In the context of the recent rapid development of the empirical sciences concerning human behavior, legal issues may be seen from new perspective. The consequence of such an empirical approach is that jurisprudence becomes purely desriptive discipline. Also many problems of philosophy of science, in particular the epistemic value of scientific statements controvesy, gain a new significance for the (...)

  3. Marvin Kirsh (2013). Determining the Determined State : The Sizing of Size From Aside/the Amassing of Mass by a Mass. Philosophical Papers and Review 4 (4):49-65.
    A philosophical exploration is presented that considers entities such as atoms, electrons, protons, reasoned (in existing physics theories) by induction, to be other than universal building blocks, but artifacts of a sociological struggle that in elemental description is identical with that of all processes of matter and energy. In a universal context both men and materials, when stressed, struggle to accomplish/maintain the free state. The space occupied by cognition, inferred to be the result of the inequality of spaces, is an (...)

  4. Kevin Magill (1998). The Idea of a Justification for Punishment. Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 1 (1):86-101.
    The argument between retributivists and consequentialists about what morally justifies the punishment of offenders is incoherent. If we were to discover that all of the contending justifications were mistaken, there is no realistic prospect that this would lead us to abandon legal punishment. Justification of words, beliefs and deeds, can only be intelligible on the assumption that if one's justification were found to be invalid and there were no alternative justification, one would be prepared to stop saying, believing or doing (...)

  5. Marcin Matczak, A Theory That Beats the Theory? Lineages, the Growth of Signs, and Dynamic Legal Interpretation.
    Legal philosophers distinguish between a static and a dynamic interpretation of law. The former assumes that the meaning of the words used in a legal text is set at the moment of its enactment and does not change with time. The latter allows the interpreters to update the meaning and apply a contemporary understanding to the text. The dispute between these competing theories has significant ramifications for social and political life. To take an example, depending on the approach, the term (...)

  6. Thomas Nadelhoffer (2006). Bad Acts, Blameworthy Agents, and Intentional Actions: Some Problems for Juror Impartiality. Philosophical Explorations 9 (2):203 – 219.
    In this paper, I first review some of the recent empirical work on the biasing effect that moral considerations have on folk ascriptions of intentional action. Then, I use Mark Alicke's affective model of blame attribution to explain this biasing effect. Finally, I discuss the relevance of this research - both philosophical and psychological - to the problem of the partiality of jury deliberation. After all, if the immorality of an action does affect folk ascriptions of intentionality, and all serious (...)

    W artykule analizowane są normatywne kryteria dopuszczalności dowodów naukowych w polskim systemie prawnym, ze szczególnym uwzględnieniem dowodów neuronaukowych. W pierwszej kolejności zostaną przedstawione metody neuroobrazowania mózgu ze wskazaniem rodzaju spraw, w których zostały one wykorzystane. W drugiej kolejności omówione zostaną kryteria dopuszczalności dowodów naukowych w polskim i amerykańskim systemie prawnym. Następnie zidentyfikowanych zostanie szereg zagrożeń, których źródłem może być niezrozumienie natury i niewłaściwe posługiwanie się dowodami neuronaukowymi. Ostatnia część pracy zawiera szereg sugestii o charakterze normatywnym i pozanormatywnym, mających na celu (...)
