Download Introduction A la Philosophie du Droit (French Edition) by Bjarne Melkevik,Ekaterina Samokhina PDF

By Bjarne Melkevik,Ekaterina Samokhina

Notre mind's eye peut nous faire emprunter d’innombrables chemins, mais ceux que nous fait emprunter l. a. philosophie du droit ne sont dédiés qu’aux esprits ouverts, evaluations et réfléchis. Ce livre s’inscrit comme une initiation à l’étude de los angeles philosophie du droit, en tant que domaine de réflexion et des interrogations juridiques. Les principaux thèmes abordés porteront sur un droit qui se veut moderne et démocratique. Cependant, nous le verrons, c’est un droit pour lequel il faut s’engager et militer pour, in wonderful, assurer son développement et contrecarrer toute régression antijuridique.
Il ne s’agit pas ici de défendre un « être » ou un « devoir-être » (deux ontologies) du droit, et encore moins d’envisager une perception idéaliste et métaphysique du droit. L’objectif qui est ici recherché est non seulement d’arriver à raisonner (iusphilosophiquement parlant) sur une query juridique, mais également de réfléchir à l. a. « meilleure » façon de concevoir le droit et de le réaliser comme tel, d’une façon raisonnable, saine et démocratique.
Loin de nous l’idée de défendre ou de soutenir philosophiquement une « représentation du droit » soit-elle unidimensionnelle ou pluridimensionnelle, factuelle ou « normative ». Ex adverso, nous préférons nous mettre à los angeles portée des individus intéressés, pour lesquels nous œuvrons à mettre en position une compréhension plus claire du droit. Cela nécessite un perpétuel «contrôle de l. a. réalité» qui s’impose impérativement et de plus en plus dans los angeles philosophie du droit, face à une prolifération contemporaine d’idéologies (et de plus en plus d’idéologies réactionnaires, fumistes et contre-productives), prêtes à prendre d’assaut le domaine juridique pour imposer leurs philosophies de pacotilles.
