State Sovereignty under the Normative Theory of Law of František Weyr (1879 –1951)
Languages of publication
The normative theory of law developed by one of its greatest pre-war supporters, František Weyr, has been the result of a critical analysis of the previously dominant forms of legal research. The Czech philosopher of law addressed in a polemic manner several assumptions of the so called traditional study of law. He paid much attention, especially, to the concept of the state. Because of the philosophical foundations of his theory and his methodological carefulness, Weyr followed a monistic conception of the state and law. This fact determined his specifi c approach to state sovereignty (normative order), different from that proposed by Georg Jellinek and Jiři Pražák. The founder’s of the Brno neo-Kantian school of law approach to the concept of sovereignty was associated with his support for a monistic idea of international law and state law, along with the notion of supremacy of international law. The negation of the sovereignty of the state normative orders lent the Weyr’s theory a pacifi st dimension and contributed to implementation of his political thought.
