Hervé Pourtois, Social Theory and Legal Judgement. About J. Habermas and Kl. Günther
The social theory of law of J. Habermas has given a new impulsion to legal epistemology. For his critical theory establishes the necessary connection between the social function and the normativity of law in modern societies on the one hand and the epistemological status on the other. This paper intends to shed light on this connection.
