Keywords: Legal Hermeneutics; Legal Philosophy; Legal Science; Legal Theory; Human Agency; Public Deliberation.

By reconsidering the key features of Giuseppe Zaccaria's legal hermeneutics, we can arrive at an understanding of law not only as an instrument for making rules but also as a deliberative activity aimed at implementing relations, harmonizing conflicts, and creating intersecting areas of agreement functional to an increasingly pluralist society. As a consequence, if we disavow the role that practical reason plays in legal science and legal theory, we will inevitably end up misunderstanding the meaning of law.
