Semantic Aspects of the Grammar of Legal Texts – the Phenomenon of Nominalization
Languages of publication
The aim of the article is to present the above-captioned concepts from the field of the theory and philosophy of law which polemicize with a certain widespread model of application of law. Legal intellectuals mentioned in the text are the proponents of the anti-formalist doctrine in the law; they oppose the practice which focuses strictly solely on the content of the legal text, regardless of the specific context of the case or the achieved results, and as such are sometimes inconsistent with the principles of justice or equity. They also put special emphasis on the social goals, strategies and values that the law should pursue and postulate the approximation of law to the needs of real life. The text aims at presenting the ideological affinity between the concepts of the nineteenth century opponents of formalism and thoughts of the contemporary opponents of this trend.
