Constitutionalists at the Time of Babel

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


A phenomenon seems to characterise present-day law, a transformation that fully and profoundly involves constitutional scholarship and its way of being. We are in fact plainly witnessing - especially of late - a progressive deformalisation of legal categories, and of the language and syntax proper to jurists. Perhaps this involves not a mere simple loss of the categories, language or syntax of law, but an uncontrolled multiplication thereof, with the risk of producing - if it has not already done so - increased difficulty of dialogue among devotees of the same discipline, each working in an ambit of meaning different from that of the others. The final stage of this process obviously would be an inability of scholars to communicate among themselves and a need to acknowledge that the bearings of their discipline have been lost.
