Trefwoorden rechtsbeginselen, rechtspositivisme, Brouwer, Dworkin, soft positivism
Auteurs Arend Soeteman
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In this contribution I argue that Brouwer’s legal positivism suffers from an internal tension that is not easily solved. This tension stems from the combination of two strands in Brouwer’s thought. The first is that Brouwer wants to stick to the legal positivist view that the law is fixed by convention. The second is that there can be exceptions to the application of legal rules, based on legal principles. The combination of these two strands is, I argue, problematic, because the conventional basis for legal principles will usually be lacking in hard cases. One may then argue, as Brouwer does, that where conventions are lacking there is no law and the judge is not bound by the law. But then exceptions to rules are also allowed where there are no conventional principles to justify these exceptions. This contradicts Brouwer’s starting point that exceptions to the application of rules are possible on the basis of legal principles.

Access_open Recht als sociaal feit en recht als praktische rede

Tijdschrift Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy, Aflevering 1 2009
Trefwoorden recht als sociaal verschijnsel, recht en praktische rede, recht en moraal, Brouwer
Auteurs Jaap Hage
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    Brouwer argued against a vision of the law in which moral considerations partly determine the contents of the law. He did this for moral reasons, mainly because of the uncertainty such a vision would cause. This seems a strange view because it means that the nature of the law would depend on moral considerations concerning legal certainty. Most of the present paper is devoted to exploring two conceptions of the law, law as social fact and law as practical reason. It is argued that a view like Brouwer’s fits in the law as practical reason conception and is therefore not so strange as might seem at first sight.
