    On the Contrary: Inferential Analysis and Ontological Assumptions of the A Contrario Argument.Damiano Canale & Giovanni Tuzet - 2008 - Informal Logic 28 (1):31-43.
    We remark that the A Contrario Argument is an ambiguous technique of justification of judicial decisions. We distinguish two uses and versions of it, strong and weak, taking as example the normative sentence “Underprivileged citizens are permitted to apply for State benefit”. According to the strong version, only underprivileged citizens are permitted to apply for State benefit, so stateless persons are not. According to the weak, the law does not regulate the position of underprivileged stateless persons in this respect. We (...)

    On Legal Inferentialism. Toward a Pragmatics of Semantic Content in Legal Interpretation?Damiano Canale & Giovanni Tuzet - 2007 - Ratio Juris 20 (1):32-44.
    In this paper we consider whether a pragmatics of semantic content can be a useful approach to legal interpretation. More broadly speaking, since a pragmatic conception of meaning is a component of inferential semantics, we consider whether an inferentialist approach to legal interpretation can be useful in dealing with some problems of this important aspect of law. In other words, we ask whether Legal Inferentialism is a suitable conception for legal interpretation. In Section 1 we briefly consider the semantics/pragmatics debate (...)

    The a Simili Argument: An Inferentialist Setting.Damiano Canale & Giovanni Tuzet - 2009 - Ratio Juris 22 (4):499-509.
    The A Simili Argument draws the conclusion that a target case has a normative property Q since it shares a relevant property P with a source case. It can be seen as a complex inference constituted by three inferential steps: An abduction of the relevant property P , an induction of the class having that property, and a deduction of the target's having property Q . A major problem of this argument is the characterization of the property relevance. The standard (...)

    Projectual Abduction.Giovanni Tuzet - 2006 - Logic Journal of the IGPL 14 (2):151-160.
    Projectual abduction is the inference drawing the means to achieve an end. Planning a course of action is an inferential task and we claim that the relevant inference is abduction. We distinguish projectual abduction from epistemic abduction. While epistemic abduction aims to determine an explanatory relation, projectual abduction aims to determine a teleological relation. It is important to remind in any case that abduction does not stand by itself: as is true for epistemic abduction, projectual abduction has to be developed (...)

    What is the Reason for This Rule? An Inferential Account of the Ratio Legis.Damiano Canale & Giovanni Tuzet - 2010 - Argumentation 24 (2):197-210.
    Several legal arguments use the notion of ratio legis in order to sustain a normative conclusion, in particular the argument from analogy and some forms of teleological argumentation. However, determining the ratio is often a difficult and controversial task. In this paper we look firstly at the speech acts typically performed by legal practitioners in order to determine the ratio and, secondly, we take into account the argumentative commitments they undertake in so doing and the argumentative constraints put on them. (...)

    What the Legislature Did Not Say.Damiano Canale & Giovanni Tuzet - 2016 - Journal of Argumentation in Context 5 (3):249-270.
    The paper is about the uses of the argument from legislative counterfactual intention, in the field of legal interpretation and argumentation. After presenting the argument from intention in general, it distinguishes the varities of the argument from counterfactual legislative intention and discusses their justification conditions.

    Crtica o probavnom realizmu.Giovanni Tuzet - 2015 - Revus 25:7-10.
    Prema najekstremnijem obliku pravnoga realizma sudske odluke ovise o tome što su suci jeli za doručak. Nejasno je je li itko od američkih pravnih realista takvo što zaista i tvrdio. Ponekad se to ekstremno stajalište pripisuje Jeromeu Franku, što nije iznenađujuće s obzirom da se Franka obično smatra najradikalnijim, najskeptičnijim i najciničnijim među tim realistima. Tvrdi se zapravo da su kritičari američkog pravnog realizma promovirali «frankifikaciju» toga pokreta upravo kako bi ga učini..

    A Short Note on Digestive Realism.Giovanni Tuzet - 2015 - Revus 25:11-14.
    The most extreme form of legal realism says that judicial decisions depend on what judges had for breakfast. It is unclear whether any of the American realists really claimed anything of that sort. Sometimes Jerome Frank is charged with that extreme view, which is not surprising given that Frank is generally considered to be the most radical, skeptical and cynic among those realists. It has been said in fact that critics of American legal realism have promoted a “Frankification” of this (...)

    Analogical Reasoning and Extensive Interpretation.Damiano Canale & Giovanni Tuzet - 2017 - Latest Issue of Archiv Fuer Rechts Und Sozialphilosphie 103 (1):117-135.
    Extensive interpretation of legal provisions is in tension with the prohibition of reasoning by analogy in criminal law, for it is unclear what the difference is between the two. Some scholars claim that they differ from a theoretical point of view, since they do not have the same argumentative structure. On the other hand, the two come to the same result starting from the same legal materials: they justify the extension of a regulation to a case that is not explicitly (...)

  14. Economic Consequences for Lawyers.Fabrizio Esposito & Giovanni Tuzet - 2020 - Journal of Argumentation in Context 9 (3):368-398.
    This article moves from the premise that a bilateral relationship between law and economics requires the contribution of the theory of legal argumentation. The article shows that, to be legally relevant, economic consequences have to be incorporated into interpretive arguments. In this regard, the jurisprudential preface strategy proposed by Craswell goes in the right direction, but begs the question of why the legally relevant consequences have to be assessed in terms of total welfare maximization instead of, in the EU context (...)

    The Sign of the Four: Italian Pragmatists Retold1.Giovanni Maddalena & Giovanni Tuzet - 2011 - European Journal of Pragmatism and American Philosophy 3 (1):147-162.
    This paper is a contribution to the study of the four classical Italian pragmatists: Papini, Prezzolini, Vailati and Calderoni. They are seen more as representatives of a pragmatist movement than as singular systematic thinkers. The center of Italian pragma-tism was the periodical, Leonardo, where these authors discussed and presented an origi-nal and provocative understanding of pragmatist philosophy. Thier understanding of pragmatist philosophy has often been underestimated by the subsequent literature. They showed a good comprehension of the novelty brought by American (...)

    Assessment criteria or standards of proof? An effort in clarification.Giovanni Tuzet - 2020 - Artificial Intelligence and Law 28 (1):91-109.
    The paper provides a conceptual distinction between evidence assessment criteria and standards of proof. Evidence must be assessed in order to check whether it satisfies a relevant standard of proof, and the assessment is operated with some criterion; so both criteria and standards are necessary for fact-finding. In addition to this conceptual point, the article addresses three main questions: Why do some scholars and decision-makers take assessment criteria as standards of proof and vice versa? Why do systems differ as to (...)

  19. Inevitable Ignorance as a Standard for Excusability: An Epistemological Analysis.Giovanni Tuzet & Roberto Ciuni - 2019 - Synthese 198 (6):5047-5066.
    In this paper, we discuss the notion of inevitable ignorance that the Italian Constitutional Court has introduced in justifying a restriction of the legal maxim Ignorantia legis non excusat. In particular, we argue that the epistemic flavor of the notion extends to the notion of inevitability beside that of ignorance, and we offer an epistemic analysis of the notion. This analysis is based both on the legal-theoretical framework defined by the justification of the restriction of the maxim, and on a (...)

    Legal Judgment as a Philosophical Archetype: A Pragmatist Analysis of Three Theses.Giovanni Tuzet - 2011 - European Journal of Pragmatism and American Philosophy 3 (2):275-288.
    The article addresses three theses on judgment in general and legal judgment in particular, starting from Peirce’s and Dewey’s claims about them. The first thesis, onto-logical, concerns the content of an act of judgment and says that judgment is about an ob-ject instantiating a property . The second, alethic, concerns the relation between judgment and truth and says that judgment is the at-tribution of a truth value to a proposition. The third, genetic, deals with the moments of judgment claiming it (...)

    La justification des croyances peut être de nature pragmatique – à savoir, une justification qui dépende des enjeux pratiques de la situation dans laquelle le sujet ayant une certaine croyance se trouve. De plus, dans des contextes spécifiques, comme par exemple le contexte juridique, il y a des cas où une connaissance est attribuée à un sujet ayant une croyance vraie en faisant abstraction de la justification qu’il peut avoir ou non à propos de sa croyance. Dans ces cas, l’attribution (...)

    On “The Economy of Research”.Giovanni Tuzet - 2018 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 54 (2):129.
    In some of his philosophical and scientific works Charles S. Peirce emphasized the economic constraints put upon scientific research. The process of generation, selection and testing of hypotheses, as well as the collection of data and information, is subject to time and resource constraints. Working scientists must individuate the most promising hypotheses and lines of research given the amount of resources at disposal. To this effect they have to estimate in particular the resources needed for testing, and what the acceptability (...)

    ‘Suspension of Disbelief’: A Coherentist Theory of Fiction.Giovanni Tuzet - forthcoming - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique:1-24.
    Why do we say that a certain fiction is good, or even credible? The paper discusses the issue of fiction acceptability or credibility, with reference to the literary and legal domains in particular. Coleridge claimed that ‘poetic faith’ involves a suspension of disbelief. If he was right, to be good a literary fiction must be credible. Literary credibility does not mean truth or truthfulness. The paper contends that it means, in some senses to be specified, coherence; hence it provides a (...)
