  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Hermeneutics; Criminal Law; Interpretation; New Paradigm.

In continental Europe, modern criminal law has been built on the foundations of legality and the exclusion of judicial lawmaking. Its genetic code is thus incompatible with legal hermeneutics, which puts the judicial application of law at center stage and claims a constitutive role for interpretation. The author retraces the difficult and agonizing path along which the Italian criminal law community has opened up to hermeneutics in recent years, laying the groundwork for constructing a new scientific paradigm.
