Keywords: Hermeneutic Circle, Comprehension, Legal Theory, Self-understanding.

The author, in presenting his latest volume, underlies that, in the last twenty years, human science, and particularly legal science, have successfully understood interpretation as a means through which one may acquire knowledge about the world. This success depends, for the hermeneutic method, on its being grassroots, in that it is predicated on the practice of a certain ambit of experience. The book Comprendere il diritto (Understading Law) is devoted to emphasizing the connection between «understanding law» and «understading legal phenomena as a whole»: indeed, law is the result of the operations of the interpreter, and legal provisions must be understood as a semimanufactured product that the interpreter extract from the law. However, the author ponders: are judges culturally trained for the tasks that they have to carry out? Once projected on the global level, in fact, the liberal topic of limiting power becomes again crucial.
