Ontology of Law
Across Law and Philosophy
Law defines our everyday life and can constitute a jumping off point for trans-disciplinary scholarship because of its social and cultural relevance. The interest for juridical orders has a long tradition in the framework of philosophy and social sciences and especially in the field of social ontology. During the last decades social scientists and humanists have overcome the remaining skepticism with respect to the legal world and its (ostensible) technical rigidity, demonstrating to be able to manage juridical concepts and categories. Modern legal cultures have been characterized by a certain autonomy towards social reality, to some extent they the discourse on law has been self-referential. Only by means of a deeply transdisciplinary dialogue can law become relevant for the humanities and the social sciences.
Labont Law aims at building a space for a fertile interaction between philosophers, lawyers and legal theorists.
