Mute Law?

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Mute Law, Silent Legal Acts, Rodolfo Sacco, Social Ontology, Law as Language.

The present work aims at critically analyzing the conception of mute law, as proposed by Rodolfo Sacco. According to his provocative idea, there are acts and legal norms fully/completely unconnected to any semiotic procedure. The analysis is indeed centered on supposed silent acts and aims at demonstrating that the legal acts must be officially recognized through accepted semiotic codes; the above also applies when occurring through material behavior not perceived from other subject. Useful insights derived from the above considerations can be exploited to critically examine the conception of law Sacco adopted and to better focus the theory of tacit elements of the law.
