ABOUT THE BOOK

La porosità e la parziale indeterminatezza del linguaggio costituiscono, per il giurista, una sfida: un problema, ma anche un’opportunità. Il problema viene in parte risolto con il ricorso alle tradizioni ermeneutiche, alle dottrine e ai loro dogmi, che attribuiscono un significato canonico alle norme e consentono di stabilizzare il sistema.

Tali rimedi, tuttavia, negli ordinamenti più evoluti non tolgono al diritto la necessaria flessibilità, che consente d’adattare la norma al fatto, sia pure in forme tipizzate e, quindi, necessariamente subottimali. Tra le interpretazioni canoniche e le esigenze pratiche si crea, così, un rapporto dialettico, che tende a un ideale di razionalità, senza mai raggiungerlo. Da qui, l’emergere della ragionevolezza, del discernimento e della prudenza come dimensioni del giuridico: un insieme di valori che si nutre delle esperienze di vita per tradurle in concrete regole di condotta. In definitiva, l’opera si propone d’assecondare una svolta compiutamente empirista nello studio del diritto.

NEW BOOK SERIES: Law, Peace, and Justice in Medieval and Early Modern Europe - General Editor: Prof. Krista Kesselring



Law, Peace, and Justice in Medieval and Early Modern Europe

This series seeks to bring together work on ‘peace-keeping’ amongst medieval and early modern Europeans in the broadest sense: from criminal justice to transitional justice, from the resolution of interpersonal conflict within communities to treaty-making between states, from feud to refuge to reparations, from criminal trials to cultures of toleration. The series crosses conventional boundaries between medieval and early modern and welcomes work that crosses disciplinary boundaries, too, or that uses interdisciplinary approaches to subjects such as law, theology, art, political philosophy, social practice, etc. It aims broadly to promote work that helps us understand how law and justice were implicated in the ways in which people in the past imagined, implemented, and used ‘peace’, both within Europe and as Europeans moved out around the globe.

Book abstract:

The Companion to the Spanish Scholastics offers a much-needed survey of the entire field of early modern Spanish scholastic thought. The volume introduces main themes and contexts of scholastics inquiry (Theology, Philosophy, Ethics, Politics, Economics, Law, Science and the Senses) through close examination of a wide range of texts, debates, methods, and authors, as well as in-depth discussion of the relevant literature. Chapters include a useful bibliography and serve as point of departure for future research. The volume not only draws the sum of existing research, but challenges established notions and breaks new ground. Contributors are Fernanda Alfieri, Harald Braun, Paolo Broggio, Alejandro Chafuen, Wim Decock, Fernando Domínguez Reboiras, Thomas Duve, Petr Dvořák, Giovanni Gellera, Juan Manuel Gómez Paris, Christophe Grellard, Miroslav Hanke, Ruth Hill, Harro Höpfl, Nils Jansen, Vincenzo Lavenia, Thomas Marschler, Fabio Monsalve, Thomas Pink, Rudolf Schüssler, Daniel Schwartz, Leen Spruit, Toon Van Houdt, María José Vega, and Andreas Wagner.
