  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Concept of Law; Back to Law; History; Mythologies; Principles.

The mythologies of modern law have often had consequences at once absolutistic and simplistic: conspicuously uncritical. For Paolo Grossi, "back to law" means a new discovery and full affirmation of a basic principle in the making, a principle inseparable from history, plural and complex. "Law" is understood as a linguistic term describing the entire structure, the function of legal facts, the control of social change, and the corresponding culture. In fact the concept of law includes a variety of elements: rules, the recognition of an order, collective action, many lines of legal thought.
