The essay focuses on the potential of hermeneutics from the perspective of the legal order’s intrinsic politicity. If the law is related to the social and political context, then adopting a hermeneutic perspective aims at a constant adaptation of legal rules to the historical context. Legal hermeneutics is a primary aspect of the effort to understand society’s historicalanthropological understanding, operating as a testing ground for the transformative capacity of social practices and relationships, precisely because sociality is reflected in law not only affecting it but becoming a constitutive element of it.
