Paolo Grossi: Theorist of Horizontal Law

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Legal Modernity; Historicity of Law; Horizontal Law; Constitution; Customary Law.

The work of the Florentine historian and jurist Paolo Grossi - with its radical criticism of modern legal thought - can be seen as an attempt to demolish the vertical structure of law in the name of a legality that is more attentive to the dynamics of social life. For this reason, the category of horizontal law may be fruitfully employed to characterize the trajectory of his work, and to unify the concepts of his legal thought.
