Modernism and Postmodernism in Philosophy of Law
(The Globalization Era Challenges: Technological vs. Dialogical Theories)
Significance and Interpretation within the Knowledge-Based Society, ed. D. Simbotin, P. Dunca, Baia Mare, Romania, pp.203-209;
This paper is an attempt to outline characteristic features and
claims of modernist and postmodernist trends in the contemporary
philosophy of law and to show the importance of their present-day debate in
the Globalization Era. The theories presenting a postmodernist view of law
have developed a huge number of different, even contradictory, decisions.
They can be divided into dialogical and critical theories. The first ones
consider law as a self-developing system, and they put an emphasis on its
internal communicative aspects. The critical theories are oriented to a
rethinking of the most important modernist values.
