Сторінки [13-26]
Annotation The article suggests that the central problem of the nature of law arises from the reflexivity of law: the practices composing a legal system themselves make essential reference to the idea of «law». The paper criticizes theories, such as the theory of Raz, that view the idea of law as one that identifies a particular type of social institution but has no role within adjudicative legal thought.
Keywords law, reflexivity, Raz, rule of recognition.
