    This article discusses the nature of copyright as a fundamental right. After studying the two faces of copyright, both economic and moral, I analyze whether copyright should be seen as part of the freedom of artistic and scientific creation (article 20.1.b Spanish Constitution) or as part of the general property right (article 33). Finally, I explore the possibility of applying these conclusions to other intellectual property rights (related rights, patents, trademarks, etc.). This discussion is not trivial. The weight of copyright (...)

  10. What's Inside and Outside the Law?Larry Alexander - 2012 - Law and Philosophy 31 (2):213-241.
    In this article I take up a conceptual question: What is the distinction between ‘the law’ and the behavior the law regulates, or, as I formulate it, the distinction between what is ‘inside’ the law and what is ‘outside’ it? That conceptual question is in play in (at least) three different doctrinal domains: the constitutional law doctrines regarding the limits on the delegation of legislative powers; the criminal law doctrines regarding mistakes of law; and the constitutional rights doctrines that turn (...)

    In the debate between positivism and non-positivism the argument from relativism plays a pivotal role. The argument from relativism, as put forward, for instance, by Hans Kelsen, says, first, that a necessary connection between law and morality presupposes the existence of absolute, objective, or necessary moral elements, and, second, that no such absolute, objective, or necessary moral elements exist. My reply to this is that absolute, objective, or necessary moral elements do exist, for human rights exist, and human rights exist (...)

Examples are the relation between deliberative democracy and democracy qua decision-making procedure along the lines of the majority principle, the connection between human rights as moral rights and constitutional rights as positive rights, the relation between constitutional review qua ideal representation of the people and parliamentary legislation, the commitment of legal argumentation (...)

    The author offers a sketch of his thesis that legal principles are optimization commands. He presents this thesis as an effort to capture the structure of weighing or balancing and to provide a basis for the principle of proportionality as it is applied in constitutional law. With this much in place, he then takes up some of the problems that have come to be associated with the optimization thesis. First, he examines the objection that there are no such things as (...)

  27. Law, Justice and Integrity: The Paradox of Wicked Laws.T. R. S. Allan - 2009 - Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 29 (4):705-728.
    Ronald Dworkin's theory of law forges a close connection between questions about the truth of propositions of law and the question of political obligation: law as integrity is a theory of legal practice that purports to explain, not only how the content of law is determined, but also why the law—in ordinary cases—imposes an obligation of obedience. The theory (as presented) is ultimately incoherent. If we accept Dworkin's theory of the grounds of law we are obliged to reject his claims (...)

    Legal translation is viewed as “a category in its own right” (Weston in An English reader’s guide to the French legal system. Berg, Oxford, (1991, p. 2). It is a kind of translation of the language used for specific purposes (Zhao in J Transl Stud 4:28, 2000). Legal translation requires accuracy in relaying the substance of the message, while respecting the form thereof as well as the genius of the target language (Zhao in J Transl Stud 4:19, 2000; Sarcevic in (...)

    Legal scholars talk and write about interpretation in terms of the meaningof words, and for many legal philosophers legal interpretation involvessubsuming particular situations under general rules. However, the more youexamine legal interpretation the more confusing the whole idea ofinterpretation becomes. The aim of this paper is to use Bernard Lonergan'sdiscussion of functional specialization to make sense of this disorderlystate of affairs.

  38. An Enquiry on the Origins of Injustice in Legal Systems.John Charles Anderson - 1995 - Dissertation, The Catholic University of America
    The Aristotelian notions of "natural justice" and epieikeia are neglected, and even incomprehensible in much of contemporary jurisprudence and legal practice. This neglect, and any associated imbalance between legal justice and natural justice are, it is argued, at the root of many legal injustices. Concrete paradigmatic examples of legal injustices are the starting point of the analysis and used to give meaningful content to the notion of legal injustices. Ronald Dworkin's attempted justification of contemporary democratic legal systems as "interpretations" grounded (...)

  39. Two Forms of Platonism: A New Interpretation of Jung's "Mythical Empiricism" and Vico's "Critical Metaphysics".Marco Andreacchio - manuscript
    This paper juxtaposes the thought of Carl G. Jung to that of Giambattista Vico , aiming primarily at overturning all currently dominant historicist readings of Vico's political philosophy. On the way, I illuminate Vico's rational or non-dogmatic response to both medieval Christian theology and modern "scientific" philosophy . The Vico emerging through his own arguments and "reasoning" is a reviver of political philosophy in the Socratic tradition of Plato and Cicero.

  41. Legal Positivism: Still Descriptive and Morally Neutral.Andrei Marmor - 2006 - Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 26 (4):683-704.
    It has become increasingly popular to argue that legal positivism is actually a normative theory, and that it cannot be purely descriptive and morally neutral as H.L.A. Hart has suggested. This article purports to disprove this line of thought. It argues that legal positivism is best understood as a descriptive, morally neutral, theory about the nature of law. The article distinguishes between five possible views about the relations between normative claims and legal positivism, arguing that some of them are not (...)

    The goal of this dissertation is to explore and evaluate Ronald Dworkin's hermeneutical theory of law. I argue that Dworkin 's theory of law is a "hermeneutical theory." I justify my classification and show how Dworkin's theory fits in the contemporary debates in hermeneutics and how it contributes to these debates. I relate Dworkin's hermeneutical theory to the works of Hans-Georg Gadamer and Jurgen Habermas. ;I thematize the dialogical and reconstructive nature of Dworkin's hermeneutical theory, and I argue that Dworkin's (...)
