What is the Constitution? Life of the text

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Constitution, theory, interpretation

The essay explores three fundamental themes: the autority of the written Constitution, the boundary of constitutional law (which involves the relationship between written and living constitution and the question if constitutional law concerns only rules of constitutional text or even other sort of standards), the right interpretative model of constitutional text and practices. All these questions are bound by the basic thesis that constitutional law could not give up constitutional theory, whose mission is to provide us "operational canons" for supporting and justifying costitutional interpretations.
